Posted on behalf of Colchester Foodbank in partnership with our benefactors Cardea Homes.

Grand Opening of Colchester Foodbank's Warehouse in Langham.


4pm to 6pm Thursday 11th July 2019 you, your friends, and family are all invited to attend, with our benefactors 'Cardea Homes' who have helped us to get our new Langham warehouse will be doing a grand opening of the warehouse with refreshments.


We are the busiest Foodbank in Essex, we helped provide emergency food parcels for over 7,000 people in crisis in 2018 of those over a third were children


It is 10 years since we started the Foodbank. Help us give 'Hope' a home, be a brick, buy a brick, for £10 to help us build a better future, helping one family or individual at a time.


In attendance is the Member of Parliament for Colchester Will Quince, DWP Minister and the Right Reverend Roger Morris, Bishop of Colchester.


Our fabulous Foodbank army of over 100 volunteers get up each morning hoping to put the Foodbank out of business through lack of demand, worryingly the frontline professionals who refer people in crisis to us are increasing the demand for our service, which continues to grow each year. While people suffer thorugh lack of food we will do everything in our power we can to help them cope and get through their crisis.
