We launched in October 2012 and have fed nearly 28,000 people in our 8 years of existence. We are part of the Trussell Trust network of foodbanks across the country. We are currently running a delivery service due to Covid 19 but normally have 5 distribution centres that serve people weekly in Ewell, Epsom, Leatherhead, Banstead and Tadworth.
To date we have collected over 350 tonnes of food and distributed nearly 340 tonnes. Working with over 250 volunteers and 145+ agencies across the county, we are concerned about the ever increasing need of food poverty. During this period of Covid we have tripled our work load and are concerned about what comes next. This role will support us as team as we work to address poverty in our community
Alongside the food/toiletries we offer our clients extra help via our support worker, cooking courses, furniture, counselling, benefits support, venues for other agencies to meet people and signposting to help people escape poverty.
