Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill while on a low income. Essington Food Bank, with the help of our supporters make a huge difference to many families living in the local area. The food bank provides emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis in the Essington area. It will also supplement other support programs in the area which work towards supporting families in times of hardship.
All food is provided by local residents & various groups & stored at Essington Community Centre, Hobnock Road WV11 2RF. A team of local volunteers manage, receive, re-package, store and issue food parcels from the site. The involvement of the Rotary Club of Willenhall is crucial to the project, with the group’s support many families in the local area will be alleviated from the hardship of being unable to provide food for themselves and their children.
The Food Bank is open to anyone in food poverty despite where you live. Hunger doesn’t recognise boundaries and neither do we.
