Caring for local
people in crisis

Covering Canterbury, Whitstable, Herne Bay
and surrounding villages.

Soaring inflation is not just hurting the finances of local residents, it is having a dramatic impact on those of the food bank. Demand for its food parcels is at a record high and it has gone from spending nothing on groceries to ยฃ3,000 a month to cover the shortfall in donations." We spent the day with the Guardian, discussing our work and the cost of living crisis.
