Informal food bank

Give what you can

Take what you need

Voucher-free food bank

Mindful of the effects that soaring prices are having on everybody, we have started an informal food bank at St Mary's. It's a free resource for the local community. There's no need for a voucher and you don't need to register to be eligible - it's there so that anybody struggling to afford food and household basics can take what they need. The church is open 24/7 so you can pop in any time without having to let anyone know.

If you're able to give:

We are dependent on donations of non-perishable items, and donations are gratefully received. 

Please do give:

Non-perishable items such as cereal, tinned foods, pasta, rice, pasta sauce, tea, coffee, long-life milk and juice, toiletries, washing-up liquid and laundry detergent.

Please don't give:

Perishable or fresh products / anything close to or past its sell-by date.

If you're worried about money and would like to be prayed for:


Either write your request in the prayer request book in the church or email
