Caring for local
people in crisis

Covering Canterbury, Whitstable, Herne Bay
and surrounding villages.

Demand for its food parcels is at a record high and it has gone from spending nothing on groceries to £3,000 a month to cover the shortfall in donations." We spent the day with the Guardian, discussing our work and the cost of living crisis.
