We’ve had the following update from the Swindon Food Collective:

What was previously known as Swindon Food Bank is now operating as “Swindon Food Collective” . This is a new charity which has continued to feed and support people in crisis in the Swindon area, despite a difficult year. We are independent, registered with the Charity Commission, with no connection to any other organisation. We are run almost wholly by volunteers, with only one paid member of staff. We have distributed food to >2800 people in the last six months, and demand is increasing month on month.

If you would like to learn more about our work, or would like to volunteer or donate, either on an occasional or regular basis, please see any of our volunteers in your church/village. We can be contacted on our website: www.swindonfoodcollective.org. Also on Facebook and Twitter. Our donation boxes for food/toiletries are in the usual supermarket. Julie.
