New Foodbank to open at Mulberry Park

foodbank donations

We are delighted to announce that we will soon be opening a new Foodbank at the Hub at Mulberry Park serving Fox Hill, Combe Down and the surrounding area.  From 25 January 2020 the Foodbank will be open every Wednesday between 2 and 4pm and every Saturday from 10am – 12noon.

This will be our first Foodbank to open on a Saturday which will make it easier for working families who are struggling financially to access emergency food parcels.  We have recently seen a rise in  families needing our support and these new opening times have been designed in response to that need.

We are also training our staff and volunteers to be able to signpost visitors in crisis to other complimentary services in the local area.  This is an enhancement to what we currently offer at our Foodbank centres and one which we hope will significantly benefit our visitors.

If you are interested in volunteering or would like to know more about how our Foodbanks work please email office@genesistrust.org.uk
