Gloucester Foodbank

In the year 1st April 2020 to 31st March 2021 thanks to the local community giving so generously we were able to distribute 124.3 metric tonnes of food & toiletries. The food and toiletries went into 7,925 parcels to families and individuals identified by agencies such as Citizens Advice as being in crisis need and struggling to feed themselves. 2,778 (35%) of these parcels were for children aged 0 to 16 years old. The food in the parcels delivered by Gloucester Foodbank was enough to provide approximately 150,000 meals to these families and individuals.

I have heard it said that most of us are 2-3 pay checks away from needing a foodbank and this past year has demonstrated that a crisis could befall any of us. We value highly the effort that Gloucester Quays Rotary Club are putting in to raising donations - including food and funds - so that we can continue to provide our service to vulnerable families and individuals.
