Poole Food Bank

Project that seeks to help people in their time of need by providing food and signposting on to further support. Poole Food Bank vouchers are issued to families in need, voucher holders are given a free parcel of food, enough to see them and their family through the next three days. At the same time, volunteers provide a listening ear and, where appropriate, advice about other forms of support. All of the food is donated by local churches, schools and individuals - tinned and dried food is provided to ensure easy storage. Vouchers are held by churches and professionals in the health and Social Care sectors who are working with people who may be in crisis.
