IMPORTANT NOTICE: meeting the challenges of COVID-19 (updated 23 May 2020)

 

The Foodbank at St Matthew's is working to meet the challenges of coronavirus (COVID-19). Low income families and older people are going to be hit particularly hard. Please spare a thought for others when doing your supermarket shop or stocking up for yourself.

 

We are currently still open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from midday until 2.00pm BUT:

  

  • If you are struggling financially to pay for food due to the current pandemic, please contact the Council on 01737 276000

  • Clients should still come to us via a referral agency (this now includes the Council)

  • Donations should be dropped off outside (to the left of) the entrance to the Church Hall (up the hill behind the Church) during Foodbank opening times. Please:

    • Maintain a distance of 2 metres (6 feet) between yourself and anyone else dropping off donations

    • Consolidate donations to limit the number of visits

    • Consider donating money instead of food (follow the link below to find out how to do this) so we can arrange delivery directly to us from a supermarket   

 

Please check out the food and other supplies we currently need, which we will try to update regularly so you can donate what we need most. We also welcome donations of money to enable us to buy stock as we need it.

 

Food is a basic need, yet there are people in Redhill who are going hungry because they just don’t have enough money to feed themselves and their families.
 

How can this happen? More easily than you think: 

  • benefit delay

  • redundancy

  • sudden illness

  • an unexpected bill

  • bereavement

  • too low income to make ends meet

This is where the Foodbank at
St Matthew’s 
can help. We aim to provide local families and individuals with essential food supplies to keep them going until a longer term solution is found.
