About our foodbank

Southend Foodbank opened its doors on the 1st Nov 2013.

We are in our seventh year now and have fulfilled nearly 11,000 vouchers – which represents over 26,600 people (adults and children) – all of whom received 3 days worth of emergency food.

Each voucher presented to us means a conversation, an opportunity to be listened to or to sign-post; it’s an opportunity to pray with someone and for them to maybe find a bigger community to be part of.

Since opening, we’ve had over 258 tonnes of food donated from over 400 different donors, including churches and schools, and we have given out over 247 tonnes of food.
