Rugby Foodbank want to thank all of you for your support in the last year in donating to Rugby Foodbank. We would be delighted if you would consider donating to our Harvest appeal again this year.
Harvest is a particularly important time of year for the foodbank to stock it’s shelves ready for winter. We are appealing from today to the Churches and Schools in Rugby to support our harvest appeal but that extends to all the community in Rugby should feel the need to support those in our community suffering in food poverty. Please view our video for the Harvest appeal herewith.
Throughout the last year, Rugby Foodbank has been able to provide food to over 3,200 adults and 1,800 children, and we have given out over 83 tonnes of food this year alone. The demands on the foodbank are growing; last financial year we helped even more people than the previous year, and this is where we need your help.
During the Covid lockdowns we have been donated a tremendous amount of food. In particular we do not need pasta, pasta sauce, baked beans or soups, as we have excess stock of these items.
However, we do still have real shortages of other items. Please see our donations page for our latest stock requirements.
We would be delighted if you would continue to partner with us to help make a difference in our community. Could you organise a Harvest collection for Rugby foodbank this year? We can collect the food if you are unable to deliver it to our warehouse, our collections will be primarily on Mondays and Thursdays. Our warehouse is open weekdays from 9:30 to 12:00.
