Storehouse Foodbank is a project that aims to support families, couples, and individuals in short-term need of food and toiletries. Based in Trowbridge, this service began in 2006 in response to a growing need within our community. Since then, we have developed good working relationships with a range of local agencies and services to support the wider community.
In April 2010, the food bank opened a referral centre. Over the years we have seen continual and significant growth in need.
People who access our service find themselves in difficult circumstances often through no fault of their own. For example, they may have been made redundant or have lost work through a severe illness. Some service users are attempting to rebuild their life after the breakdown of a marriage or partnership, or they could be recovering from a situation of domestic violence.
Access to Storehouse is freely available to people referred by a supporting professional such as a teacher, social worker, doctor, key worker, minister, community adviser, Wiltshire Council, Citizens Advice Centre, or another agreed referral agency. Provisions can be collected from our centre where individuals, couples or families will be provided with three days’ supply of food and toiletries.
Opening hours are Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 10 am – 12.30pm.
