How to help the foodbank
We need donations of food and money to buy food and other essential items to give to people in need. We spend £1,500.00 + per month buying food, in addition to the food donated to us, in order to provide food parcels. We also welcome volunteers who have time to help us on a regular basis. Please see below for how to give food, money or your time.

How to donate money
Every penny donated to the Wells Vineyard Foodbank allows us to provide food parcels to those in need.
We spend around £2,000 every month on food to supplement donations in order to provide food and essential toiletries to people in and around Wells. There are several ways to donate.

How to volunteer
Wells Vineyard Foodbank relies on the time of unpaid volunteers to collect food donated at local supermarkets, put together food parcels and deliver food parcels to people who are unwell or otherwise unable to collect food in person. We also welcome support from people who may be interested in helping with administrative tasks.
If you have regular spare time and would like to join our team of volunteers please email the Foodbank on firstname.lastname@example.org
