All our Food Banks are run entirely by volunteers who give their time for free to help others.
We have a management committee of 5 and approximately 25 additional volunteers
that also give their time for free to collect donations, run the administration of the food bank and deliver our services.
At present we rely on generous donations from individuals and businesses who provide us with food and other donations.
Even some of our former clients come back and donate once they have got back on their feet.
