About Us

Harvest Community Food Bank was officially launched on the 29th August 2011. The food bank is a community initiative run by volunteers from NTCG Harvest Temple, which exists to serve the community by helping those in need.

Aims and Objectives

Our aim is to assist and promote the well being of vulnerable families and individuals within the local community of Wolverhampton by meeting their most basic need of food provision.

When Are We Open

Every Friday, between 3.30 pm and 5.00 pm.

Contributors to the Food Bank

The main contributor is Harvest Temple: it's members and donations from Funerals and other Special Services.
Other contributors include: Asda - Heath Town, Sainsburys - Bently Bridge, Tesco Community Food Connection (Wolverhampton) - via FareShare, St Stephens Primary School and Holy Trinity Church.

 

HOW WE HAVE HELPED

“Sometimes I have nothing and if it wasn’t for the foodbank myself and my child would have no food to eat.”

“When I have no food I have to come and it has been a God send.”

“I am really struggling with buying nappies. The bank helps me buy a few more days”

“I am struggling on benefits. I am used to working and the benefit just doesn’t last.”

“Before I came to the foodbank I had to go out begging and prostitution to feed my family.”

“When I pay the rent, my money finishes and there is nothing for food, the Foodbank helps me.”

“The food I receive stretches. I receive £43.40 pw and by the time I pay bills it does not last. The bank has stopped me going without food. I do not have any family and therefore no support.”

“When I first came to the food bank I was on my knees I was in desperate need of food and was struggling from day today but as it progressed and me coming to the bank I have now found employment. I am now a volunteer at the Foodbank.”
