SHARE Wokingham

At the start of the Covid 19 situation the Grub Club team were approached to offer their expertise in the area of food supply to families in Wokingham.

As a result of the partnerships which have been made we have been able to supply food parcels for up to 100 families a week at times,  this does not account for the number of people who come to collect food items at the church and these are separate to the Foodbank referrals. The contacts for the food parcels have come through various schools, individuals and other groups. We have also arranged the purchase and packing of around 50 fresh fruit and vegetable parcels for the local food bank each week. Since the start of Covid we have produced over 1250 food parcels between the Wokingham Community Hub, the Foodbank and direct contacts.

The majority of the items we have are donated however with the financial donations we receive we are able to put this back into the project and purchase items that we require. Share- Wokingham has been open daily to anyone who can come along to Norreys Church, offering bakery items and any other surplus food stock we have – there is no charge for this but if people are able to make a donation, however small, it is always appreciated. This means it does not carry the stigma attached to going to the Foodbank as people are not just being able to feed themselves for little to no money but they are also having an environmental impact in tackling the waste issue.

As the pandemic has continued the needs of those that we support have changed, initially it was people who were shielding and unable to get out and now we are really seeing the economic impact, job losses and financial woes have meant that people are struggling  - that is where we can support.
