West Berks Foodbank
West Berkshire Foodbank – is running Hungry Holidays over the 6 weeks of the school summer holidays to support those families needing support during this time. They expect to cater for a further 200 people per week which equates to an extra TWO TONNES of food a week!! The only way they can support these families is by the generous support of the community.
There is a collection box in the cloister area outside St George’s Church, which is emptied regularly during the day. Please drop off any donations as you are passing. The collection point is open open Tuesday – Sunday, from 10.00am – 2.00pm (and often longer).
There are also collection points in supermarkets, and at Sainsbury Local and the Co-op in Wash Common.
There is always an up-to-date list of the items most needed on the Foodbank app or on their website. https://westberks.foodbank.org.uk/give-help/donate-food/
