Thornbury Food Bank is based at Thornbury Baptist Church and welcomes donations of food or monetary funds to support those in need in the local area who are referred to us by various agencies. Due to the generosity of our donors both financially and of food, we are able to help those in need where other Foodbanks are unable to do so.
We use all donations to provide support for those who are eligible under the discretionary guidance of Thornbury Baptist Church.
We are open to clients coming in to Foodbank with a pre-arranged appointment between 1.30 and 3.30pm every Friday. We will, exceptionally, deliver to anyone who has a valid reason for not coming in to Foodbank.
Vouchers continue to be issued electronically by our Voucher Partners and sent to us here at the Baptist Church. Anyone needing a voucher can contact the organisations listed alongside this notice.
Vouchers also continue to be available from:
- Citizens Advice
- Local Schools
- Local Doctors surgeries
- New Start Debt Advice
- Health Visitors
