Here is an introduction to our project.
Founded in 2011, The Bath Foodbank is one of the hundreds of Trussell Trust Foodbanks in the country, and is one of the projects of Genesis Trust Bath.
Over the 7 years of its existence there has been evidence of increasing need – do see the annual report for details.
The Bath Foodbank is run entirely by volunteers who operate the warehouse facility, the three distribution centres and the van for collections and deliveries. There is a management committee of 8 people (when all the positions are filled) that meets regularly to plan and oversee the activities of the Foodbank.
We are entirely dependent on voluntary contributions of food and finance for the running of the Foodbank. We are generously supported by individuals, churches, schools, supermarkets and businesses.
