Caring for local
people in crisis
Covering Canterbury, Whitstable, Herne Bay
and surrounding villages.
Over the pandemic, Canterbury Food Bank has supported thousands of local residents facing food insecurity. Now, we need your support more than ever.
Due to massive demand and the end of the lease on our current Warehouse we are moving to a brand new home that will help us increase our capacity and speed up our operations, helping us to continue to put food donated by the community straight into the hands of those who need it.
This is an exciting chapter in Canterbury Food Bank’s history, and a brilliant opportunity for us to grow and change in response to new challenges. But it is also an expensive chapter; our previous premises were occupied on a peppercorn lease of £10 a month, so by paying the market rate for a suitable property our rental costs have been multiplied 133 times.
We are asking our community to help us raise a year of rent – £16,000 – up front so that all other funds can be used to buy and deliver food.
Please donate and share this appeal widely to secure the future of the Food Bank as a key charity in the district.
