Welcome to the North Guildford food bank

St Clare's Guildford Food bank

The North Guildford food bank at St Clare’s, Park Barn, the New Hope Centre, Bellfields and in Merrow (at the Bushy Hill Community Centre) has been set up to provide temporary help for individuals and families in the Guildford area who are in need. Working alongside local agencies and churches, we want to ensure that no-one goes hungry.

We receive non-perishable food from local churches, supermarkets, schools and businesses to make up food parcels. Various agencies such as the Citizens Advice Bureau, Social Services, council etc then refer people to us who are experiencing short term financial difficulties.

We remain open for business at our Park Barn, Bellfields and Merrow branches. However, our usual ways of working have been changed. To get a food parcel you will need an online referral – for details please see the ‘How to get a referral’ tab.  Please do not come without prior arrangement. We can deliver where necessary.
