Latest figures for North Guildford food bank activity
In 2017 we had 484 referral vouchers across our 3 branches. This was an increase of 27% from the previous year. As a result we provided food for over 1550 people, about half of whom were children. The main reasons for referrals to the foodbank were Low income, Benefit delays & cuts and Debt.
The generosity of individuals, supermarkets, schools, churches and businesses continued to provide us with plenty of food for which we are very grateful.
We have had a committed team of 50+ volunteers throughout the year. Without them we would not be able to function.
We are very grateful to everyone who has supported us throughout 2017 and we are committed to continuing to serving the local community in 2018.
