Food parcel deliveries

 

Telford Foodbank is based in Sutton Hill but this doesn’t mean you have to live in the TF7 area to receive our support!

In 2020 over 1600 emergency food packages were sent across Telford including centres in Donnington, Brookside, Stirchley, Hollinswood, Wellington, Woodside, Ketley, Dawley and Leegomery.

If you need help or support please call:
01952 280 400 or 01952 567 174

We can reach you wherever you are, we also work with Newport & Shifnal groups to stretch as far as possible.

We have two vehicles that are constantly in use either delivering parcels, or collecting donations so thank you all so much for keeping the donations coming in via the donate button on our website.

This helps to cover fuel, servicing, maintenance, PPE, repairs, manual handling equipment and so much more.

If you need help due to the coronavirus pandemic, Telford and Wrekin council have guidance online here – https://www.telford.gov.uk/info/20692/coronavirus_covid-19

International funding from HOWMET

Recognizing the tremendous impact that COVID-19 has placed on families, Howmet Fastening Systems (HFS) Telford, has donated $20,000 (£14,942) to Telford Crisis Support (TCS) through its annual Howmet Aerospace Foundation (HAF) funding.

We estimate that Howmet’s donation will enable approximately 10,500 additional meals to be distributed in the Telford & Wrekin area. HAF promotes equitable access and excellence in STEM and engineering education, and in training of the skilled trades. While the Foundation is funded and operated independently from Howmet, there is a
strong connection between the Foundation’s mission and the values of the Company and its employees.

This year, HAF allocated specific funds to support the local communities where the Company operates in.  

TCS provided 50,000 meals through emergency food parcels. TCS has recently expanded its services by creating a baby and toddler bank to provide families with “Moses baskets” filled with baby essentials and clothes for children up to the age of 5 years.

“People in need should not go without the basic essentials to keep themselves and their families
sheltered, fed, clean, clothed, warm and healthy,” said Jonathan Craven, Operations Director for HFS.

“Together with TCS we can make a difference in the community.”

This is a significant amount in the Telford area and due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, and as we enter the winter months, the donation and support will be greatly appreciated
by those in need.
