Together with local churches in Bognor Regis, Bognor Vineyard runs the Foodbank. Now with its own premises, Argyle Hall on Argyle Road, Bognor, the Foodbank is a vital service to the local community.
The Trussell Trust foodbanks provide a minimum of three days emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis in the UK. Last year the network fed over 60,000 people.
Matthew 25:40 ‘…Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
All food is donated by the public and sorted by volunteers. Frontline care professionals such as doctors and social workers identify people in crisis and issue a food voucher. Clients receive three days of nutritionally balanced, non-perishable food in exchange for their food voucher.
- Sort donated food ready for distribution
- Work in the Foodbank centre: meet clients and give out food
- Help out at a Foodbank supermarket collection
Prayer and evangelism are an integral part of the organisation and our volunteers work tirelessly to reach out into the community. Foodbanks make time to chat and to signpost clients to other helpful services.
