The As-Suffa Food Bank project was initiated in 2016 to supplement our Homeless project. From our experience of feeding the homeless, we discovered that families were also visiting the Homeless provision, as they didn’t have enough food at home. This stirred us to provide emergency groceries to service users who although have accommodation are still experiencing hardship.
As-well as operating a collection service majority of our parcels are now delivered directly to the recipients by our team of volunteers, this is an essential lifeline for those with mobility issues and childcare needs. To ensure that our limited supplies get to those most in need to be able to collect a food bank parcel you must be referred by a professional eg GP, School etc.
All our food parcels are sufficient to feed an average size family for one week. Our parcels include non-perishable goods like pasta, UHT milk, canned soups, etc.
To date, we have served over 3,000 food parcels to the most needy individuals and families. We are also pleased to announce that we now work alongside several referral partners. These include the police service, schools and the local council.
