Food Bank

We don’t believe anyone in our community should have to face going hungry.

That’s why we’re working to combat poverty and hunger, we take good quality surplus food from individuals and across the food industry and redistribute it by providing three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency support to local people who are referred to us in crisis.

How we do it

Providing emergency food to people in crisis.

People go hungry for various reasons including losing their job or receiving an unexpected bill or worse. A simple box of food can make a huge difference to their outcomes, with food banks helping prevent housing loss, crime, family breakdown and mental health problems.

Food is donated

Local Super Markets, businesses, Schools, churches,  and individuals donate non-perishable, in-date food to us.

Food is sorted and stored

Volunteers sort food to check that it’s in date and pack it into boxes ready to be given to people in need. Many people give up their time to volunteer at All Stars Food Bank.

Professionals identify people in need

All Stars Food bank partners with a wide range of care professionals such as doctors, health visitors, social workers and police to identify people in crisis and issue them with a food bank voucher.

Clients receive food

Food bank clients bring their voucher to All Stars where it can be redeemed for three days’ emergency food. Volunteers meet clients and are able to signpost people to agencies able to help solve their longer-term problems.

Help us get food to vulnerable people in our community

Demand for food has skyrocketed, with the coronavirus pandemic pushing thousands of people into financial hardship, with many more families struggling to put food on the table this year. We rely on voluntary donations to fund our vital work providing compassionate and practical help to children and families in poverty.

We urgently need your help to deliver more healthy, nutritious food to those less fortunate in our community during this crisis.

Donate Food

Our Food Bank relies on your support.

The majority of the food distributed by All Stars Food Bank is donated by the public, that’s why your food donations are vital to our ability to give everyone referred to us a balanced and nutritious three day supply of food.

Our shopping list shows the food items that we need right now. Unfortunately we cannot accept donations of clothing or toys, chilled or frozen foods or items past their best before date. Donations are accepted at our food bank on Tuesdays and Saturdays between 1pm – 5pm , please call 0747 542 6327 or email us at allstarsyouthclub.org@gmail.com to arrange a time you would like to drop the items off.

 

Donate Money

Reaching out for help when you are in crisis can be a scary and overwhelming thing. That is why our food bank offers more than a place to collect emergency food. Our volunteers give everyone who walk through our doors a warm welcome, taking the time to talk through clients needs in a safe environment, making sure that people leave with not just food, but also an action plan.

You don’t have to do something big to have a life changing impact. By making a regular donation you will be making a real difference because every donation we receive helps transform lives and enables us to continue providing support and guidance to people in crisis.
