St Werburghs Food Share

Supporting our community

St Werburghs Food Share supports families in the local area by providing them with food parcels and other weekly necessities. With food and energy prices rising, food poverty in Bristol is only predicted to increase and the families using the service are more in need than ever of the resources we provide.

If your children attend a local school and you are struggling with money you can sign up to the Food Share by emailing reuben@stwerburghs.org.uk or calling 0117 955 1351.

How you can help

Our Food Share launch was made possible through the generous support of Burges Salmon, for which we are incredibly grateful. We do however rely on the continued support of our community. Here’s how you can help:

  • Donate food and essentials: donations of non-perishable food and other essentials from our Wishlist are always welcome and can be left at reception in a clearly labelled box.
  • Contribute to our fundraiser: visitwww.gofund.me/90401615. All donations will help to secure the food parcels needed by families in our community.
  • Tell your friends: share our crowdfund and Wishlist on social media.
  • Network: do you know a business who might like to help with supplies or funding? Tell them about us too.
  • Volunteer: if you are interested in volunteering or would like to find out more, contact reuben@stwerburghs.org.uk.

The story so far…

St Werburghs Food Share is a continuation of Bristol Family Community Food Share Project that was set up here with support from Brighter Places Housing Association during the pandemic. Through the two projects, we have already supported over 70 families by providing them with essential supplies.

Although some of the challenges facing these families has changed since Covid-19 restrictions were lifted, the issues are by no means solved. Bristol families are still experiencing the struggles of rising food and energy prices.  We are incredibly grateful to everyone who has helped us so far – our community has shown what can be achieved when we work together.
