Caring for local
people in crisis

Covering Canterbury, Whitstable, Herne Bay
and surrounding villages.

Feature in the Guardian looking at how steeply rising food and energy prices have affected households and the work we do at Canterbury Food Bank. The figures and statistics are alarming with food price inflation hitting a record 16.7% in the four weeks to 22 January 2023.
The article highlights not only the difficulty people are having in coping with a cost of living crisis but also how hard it is affecting support services such as ourselves trying to help.

Today we received a tray of ‘free from’ Easter Bunnies from The Sadie Bristow Foundation, donated in memory of Sadie. We are extremely grateful for this extraordinarily thoughtful gesture. Sadly, in 2018 Sadie suffered an extreme allergic reaction and tragically died aged just 9. The Sadie Bristow Foundation aims to continue Sadie legacy by inspiring children like her to take up sports and through improving allergy education.
