Feltham Food Bank (FFB) is proud to help provide food to individuals and families who are struggling in the local community. Again, all of our work could not be done without the generous donations we receive.
In the months June to December 2018, Feltham Food Bank distributed 600 food parcels to feed 910 adults and 691 children. These figures demonstrate an ongoing increase month on month as shown in the chart.
As a comparison, in the same months June to December 2017, Feltham Food Bank distributed 424 food parcels to feed 576 adults and 539 children.
In December 2018 we also provided 82 large Christmas hampers helping 127 adults and 122 children.
Everyone is referred by a professional organisation and each referral allows them to collect food from FFB three times.
FFB has an army of about 35 volunteers and trustees – without their time and hard work, the food bank could not exist. Feltham Food Bank offers volunteering opportunities to many local residents. Some of our volunteers are people recovering from ill health or aiming to return to full time employment.
