UK foodbanks

The Trussell Trust's UK foodbank network works in partnership with local churches and communities to open foodbanks nationwide. There are over 400 foodbanks in the UK. Last year UK foodbanks fed over 900,000 people. Read more

We are grateful to St. Georges (with St. Lukes and St. Perrans) for their help with getting the foodbank started and to Barrow Deanery for providing start up funding for the Barrow Foodbank.  Also, Abbey Road Baptist church for their generosity in providing premises from which the foodbank can operate.  Read more...
