Walton & District Community Foodbank
The Walton and District Community Food Bank is a Voluntary Organisation originally set up by Walton Churches Together to address some of the problems stemming from the growing level of poverty within our district. Although it is essentially a Christian organisation, the FoodBank is not tied to any particular church or ministry. It draws its team members from, and serves, the whole wider community.
Based at Walton Community Centre, Standley Road, CO14 8PT, the FoodBank is open Mondays from 11:30 to 12:30 to receive donations and Fridays between 10:30 and 13:00 to distribute food parcels. Also on Fridays support workers from Peabody Outreach Support are in attendance to offer help & advice on housing, benefits and financial problems. Contact: 07926 015276.
Since January 2019 the FoodBank has been the prime mover behind ‘Meals Matters’. Meals Matters offers a free meal to anyone suffering from food poverty or social isolation. Lunch is offered on Tuesdays at Emanuel Church, New Pier Street, CO14 8EB between 12:00 and 13:30.
