Welcome to the North 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. These parcels are given in exchange for a food voucher granted by various agencies such as the Citizens Advice Bureau, Social Services, council etc to those experiencing short term financial difficulties.
