Haverhill Food Bank

Haverhill Food bank was officially launched in October 2008 in partnership with the Trussell Trust and Haverhill and District Churches Together (HDCT).

It only takes a change in circumstances; for example, loss of job, benefit cut or benefits delay and families already struggling to make ends meet either have to borrow money for food, or go without.

All the food is donated from the general public individuals – as well as schools, churches and other organisations. The food is of the non perishable variety, for example – Long life milk, tomatoes, soups, tinned vegetables, tinned meat, tinned potatoes, tinned fruit, tinned rice pudding, pasta/rice, fruit juice, tea, coffee & sugar etc.
