Funding Bristol Community Foodshare

Bristol families are facing an unprecedented time of instability, especially regarding putting food on the table. Covid has affected us all but it has hit parts of our community harder than others. 

We are hoping to carry on the amazing work that St Barnabas Primary School has begun with a 'Community Food Share', providing food and essential items to local families in this time of need. 

We currently hope to maintain the resources needed to help those connected with St Barnabas Primary School over the school holidays but  would like to be able to open this up to many more groups in and around the St Werburghs, St Pauls, Montpelier and St Philips area into the September term. 

Job security is becoming less stable as the furlough scheme tapers out, gig economy workers can find less work and self employed people are also facing uncertainty, whilst the government has now pledged to continue to provide Free School Meal Vouchers over the summer (which will help in a huge way), there is still a further need to do more and support people at this time. 

In addition to passing on basic food items from the new base at St Werburghs Community Centre, we are hoping to be working in collaboration with 'Travelling Kitchen' to provide cooked meals, ingredients and recipes to families with the hope to excite and inspire community within the kitchen at home.  

We want to stand together and bridge the gap with this amazing and unified part of Bristol.




Thank you.
