Food-bank Donation Week | 25 - 31 May
Wendover Foodbank is part of the Chiltern Foodbank network, supported by the The Trussel Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK. No one in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why they provide three days nutritionally balanced non-perishable emergency food and support to local people who are struggling to put food on the table. If you know an individual or family who are in need of the foodbank, please contact John Shaw on 07899 964037.
Since the start of the Covid-19 Pandemic the demand for the foodbank has increased in Wendover and throughout the Chiltern area. Therefore, Wendover Youth Centre, Churches Together in Wendover, and Wendover Parish Council are coming together with the Wendover Foodbank to organise a food bank donation week from 25th-31st May.
During this week we encourage Wendover and the surrounding community to donate food to the foodbank. The items that are listed below are what help to create the food boxes:
