Providing food for those who cannot feed themselves.
The Wokingham Foodbank exists to provide temporary help to people who cannot afford to buy food for themselves and their families. This can be caused by many factors including unemployment, benefit delays or benefit changes, changes in family circumstances, domestic violence, release from custody, delayed wages, or sickness. They are referred to the foodbank by care professionals who evaluate their situation and, if necessary, issue a voucher which entitles them to a food parcel.Why the community needs us
By ensuring that those who cannot afford to feed themselves have a means of obtaining food we aim to ensure that children do not go hungry, that people do not have to resort to crime or begging and that their health is maintaned so that they can take whatever opportunites arise to help themselves.Our impact on the community
