Since 2013, Telford Crisis Support has operated a Foodbank in Telford and Wrekin to provide emergency food, toiletries and clothing to those most in need.
To address the growing crisis of food poverty we collect over 10000 kg of food donations every year.
We sort it, store it and create food parcels. We receive roughly 3000 requests for emergency support each year
We partner with the Telford Crisis Network to ensure that our service users can get the help they need as quickly as possible and without being passed around from agency to agency.
We have donation points across the borough and we work with schools, churches, community groups, supermarkets and businesses of all sorts as well as our volunteers who give on average 200 hours of their time each month!
Telford Crisis Support provides approximately 250 food parcels every month.
Food reaches people through our network of collection points via our team of volunteer drivers and through partners who have referred their clients.
If you have any ideas, or think that you can help us or the community, please get in touch
We are a registered charity, number 1158650
