Helping Local People in Crisis

Braintree Area Foodbank began feeding those in needs in April 2012.  Since then we have fed over 10,000 adults and children and unfortunately these numbers are only set to rise.

Working in conjunction with local agencies the Foodbank users are those in society who face hardships caused by short term employment contracts, unemployment and benefit issues and those whose wage is not enough to feed themselves and their families.  These groups are the most vulnerable within today’s society which is why our work is so vital. 

We have centers based in Halstead, Witham and two in Braintree. These are manned by a fantastic group of volunteers who offer a warm welcome, a smile and a cup of tea to those who are in need but without your donations we will not be able to provide this help.

You’re Donations Will Count

No matter how small a monetary donation it will help us to ensure that we continue to supply food and ensure that those within the Braintree Area do not go hungry.

To be able to feed those in crisis within the Braintree Area it costs between £30k and £40k a year.  These are our basic running costs including maintaining the warehouse and most importantly keeping our delivery van taxed, serviced and running costs covered.  This means that to feed one person it costs £14 and to feed a family of four it £56.  This is why your donations are so vital to our survival. 

Fundraising, monthly donation or a single one off payment will all help those in food crisis.

Thank you
