Washington Community Food Project (WCFP) -  Anyone  out of work, working less hours or for ANY reason find themselves in difficulty or crisis, is urged to contact WCFP who can support and help both individuals and families (in many ways without referral).

The Food Bank is based in unit 0 upstairs in The Galleries where they are open for referrals and donations, etc Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays 12 noon - 3pm. Regular donation points remain at Sainsbury's and Sainsbury's Teal Farm. 

For Springwell Village, there is a collection box at the back of our Church with regular deliveries to WCFP. Donations always gratefully received.

Donations can also be dropped off at any of their many drop offs - see above and their Facebook page. 

Examples of items always needed are:-

Dried potato (Smash), UHT Milk, tins of vegetables and rice pudding. They always welcome tinned ham/corned beef/mince, dried spaghetti, cereals and pasta sauces plus the staples - tea and instant coffee. They would also appreciate donations of baby food, wipes and nappies. They also accept pet food.

Supplies of toiletries and sanitary products are always appreciated. 

As demand is increasing more than ever in these difficult times,  it is vital that donations continue. They are very much appreciated by those people who find themselves in desperate circumstances.  

People needing help, can ask the Job Centre, their landlord, such as Gentoo, their health or social worker, some churches etc, who can make about a referral if they are in need.

The Food Bank doesn't deal with any self referrals or people who turn up on spec without going to a referral agency first."
