Help Canterbury Food Bank during Coronavirus

Canterbury Food Bank are appealing for donations to help feed people and to provide household essentials during the Coronavirus crisis. 

The charity is experiencing a significant rise in demand as the crisis continues and needs funds to replenish stocks on a regular basis. 

The decision by stores to limit purchases due to panic buying has led to fears shoppers may feel less able to buy extra items to put in food bank baskets. 

Additionally, people may visit shops less frequently to avoid social contact, limiting their opportunity to give food and other items to the charity. 

We are appealing to our supporters to donate cash directly and to continue donating food at supermarkets when they can. 

The food bank provides emergency three-day food parcels to individuals and families in short-term financial crisis across Canterbury, Whitstable, Herne Bay and surrounding villages. 
In the last year, Canterbury Food Bank has distributed 31,257 meals and its volunteers have worked unpaid for 16,557 hours.
