Rickmansworth Foodbank, organised by the Mill End Community Trust in partnership with The Trussell Trust wants to thank the community for their continued support as the high demand for services continues.
Residents generously donated to the national Trussell Trust Foodbank collection at Tesco’s Superstore in Rickmansworth between July 15 and 18 donating all kinds of foods to help those in need in the community. Additional collection points will also be in Tesco Express stores throughout August.
Iris Bangs, Rickmansworth Foodbank manager said: “We would also like to thank all the numerous donors that donate regularly both financially and directly to our distribution points and into the permanent collection points at both Waitrose and Tesco. It is through this generosity that we are able to continually support many families & individuals across our local communities that are undergoing a crisis.”
“Since COVID we have experienced an increase in demand for the food bank, in the financial year 20-21 we provided for 3,215 people, whereas normally we provide approximately 1,200 in most years.”
The Community Trust also hosts activities at the Methodist church, Mill End. On Tuesday and Friday, they run Healthy Hub, which offers a variety of support with physical and anxiety issues, as well as Citizens Advice drop-in on Tuesday. They hope to reopen the cafe in September to provide a social community hub.
