As the largest independent foodbank in Northumberland we take pride in helping to relieve the consequences of poverty or financial hardship by providing food to the hungry.
We believe that in our community no one should go hungry. However, we live in a far from ideal world where life and wellbeing can so easily be disrupted almost overnight. Without realising many of us tread this fine line and nothing demonstrates this more so than Covid.
Early in 2020 the very idea of a pandemic was unimaginable. Now we are beginning to understand it wreaks havoc on individuals, families, and communities alike – not just for today but possibly for months and even years ahead.
We at Wansbeck Valley Food Bank are well familiar with stories that describe the journey from wellbeing to the despair of food poverty. And every story we hear resolves our number one priority to ensure clients have food for today and access to appropriate resources that lead to self-sufficiency tomorrow.
Since 2013, and through the current consequences of Covid, the foodbank remains absolutely and totally committed to relieving food poverty. Today our doors remain open to those who have nowhere else to turn and it will be the same tomorrow and thereafter until the day food povery hopefully becomes some distant memory.
Since 2016 we have been able to issue food to the value of £500,000.
These are challenging times but by working together – and in community – all things are possible. Thank you for your continuing support and generosity
