Objectives

Our foodbank was founded by local churches, and is part of the Trussell Trust’s network of foodbanks across the UK. We provide emergency food provisions to help people in crisis but, in the long-term, we hope to support sustainable solutions to address poverty in Cambridge – eradicating the need for a foodbank altogether.

Activities

“The foodbank was there when we really needed it, it was an absolute lifeline.”

To keep our operations running we rely on a 200-strong team of dedicated volunteers, some of whom have been with us from the very beginning. Today, our foodbank provides food parcels from six centres in locations across Cambridge city and beyond, ensuring we can support those areas in the greatest need. We also have three warehouses to store and organise our food donations and we work with around 100 partner agencies, enabling different avenues for referral and ways for people in need to receive foodbank vouchers.
