Food Bank

 

Redditch Baptist Church supports Redditch Foodbank by making regular donations of food and by providing volunteers to staff the distribution centre at St Stephen's Church. The Foodbank is open Tuesday and Wednesday between 10.00am - 2.00pm and Friday between 10.00am and 1.00pm. The foodbank also has a distribution centre at Christ Church Matchborough which is open on Wednesday between 1.00pm and 4.00pm. Emergency food parcels provided by the foodbank are available from the Town Hall and Redditch Nightstop who help young people between the ages of 16 - 25.

People in need of help can be referred to the foodbank by referral agencies such as Redditch Council, the Housing Options Team, CAB or the Benefits Office. There are a number of other referral agencies in the town. The Foodbank provide short term emergency help and people are provided with enough food for three days. The foodbank also aim to signpost people to other agencies that may be of assistance.

If you would like to make a donation of food, there is a collection box in Tescos Oakenshaw, Redditch. Donation can either be placed in the box at church or taken to St Stephen's. Please try to ensure that the food is within date and undamaged. The foodbank is only able to distribute non-perishable foodstuff because of the difficulties storing fresh food.

The items we need at present are: Sugar, Tinned and Mashed Potatoes, Tinned Fruit, Tinned Rice Pudding, Tinned or microwavable Sponge Puddings, Instant Coffee, Long life Fruit Juice, UHT Milk, Tinned meat and fish and Toiletries such as shower gel, toothpaste, razors and toilet roll.
