Objectives

Wokingham is one of the wealthiest towns in England - but it's also one of the most expensive places to live, and not everyone has an income that lets them manage.We don’t think anyone in Wokingham should go hungry, or have to choose between eating or heating and lighting their home.

The Wokingham Foodbank is a project founded by local churches and community groups, working together towards stopping hunger in our local area.

We are overseen by the Ministers meeting as Churches Together in Wokingham.  

We are staffed mainly by volunteers and rely on the generosity of the people of Wokingham and surrounding areas to donate sufficient food, supplies and cash to allow us to carry out this much needed service to our neighbours in need.

Activities

We provide a minimum of three days' nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us buy one of the 70 care agencies who we work with in Wokingham.
