Renew Church runs a referral-based Food Bank in Uttoxeter and the surrounding villages providing hundreds of needy families and individuals with food and toiletries each year.
We provided some clients with one parcel to help them through a difficult times and others are given longer support.
We get referrals from different organisations in the area as well as working with Fairshare, an organisation that provides a link to our local Tesco store allowing us to receive surplus fresh food. Our food bank is supported by other local churches, schools, businesses and individuals.
Each food bank client receives an invite to church. It’s an honour for us to reach out to our local community and help people in their time of need.
