Cirencester Foodbank was formed in 2012, covering 210 square miles across the southern Cotswolds. We work to support local people who are referred to us in crisis and ensure that no-one goes hungry by providing three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food. Alongside the food we also provide other essentials such as household, hygiene, baby and pet products.


Our work also involves developing initiatives, and providing support, that resolve the underlying crisis that has led local people to need foodbank support. Working in partnership with other agencies, organisations , groups and Churches, we work to end the need for foodbanks in the South Cotswolds.

We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK. The foodbank is governed by a board of trustees who oversee the activities of the foodbank and ensure that it operates within its charitable purposes and legal and regulatory framework.  The trustees also set the strategic objectives of the foodbank, working with the seven members of staff to deliver on those objectives.
