Your local food bank. An independent charity that aims to help people in Swindon, or the surrounding area who are suffering from financial hardship and finding it difficult to provide food for themselves, their family or dependants. They are here to help.
What they do
They are an independent food bank in Swindon and currently feed nearly 10,000 people per year, one third of these are children.
They receive donations of non-perishable, tinned or dried food and toiletries from churches, schools, local companies, community groups, supermarkets and individuals.
From these donations, food boxes are prepared for individuals, couples and families. They work with a large number of approved organisations, schools, doctors and social workers who can refer people in crisis to us. They provide food, a friendly chat and try to signpost people for further help. They have 11 distribution centres around Swindon and surrounding areas (with another one opening in Autumn 2023) where food can be collected.
