St Werburghs Foodshare

Supporting our community

St Werburghs Foodshare 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 Foodshare by emailing or calling 0117 955 1351.

We ask for a £3 suggested donation each week for the service.

How you can help

Our Foodshare launch was made possible through the generous support of Burges Salmon, for which we are incredibly grateful. However we do now 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: visit our Go Fund Me page. 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

A lovely thank you from a Foodshare client:
“I also want to use this medium to appreciate you and your team for helping me and the kids during this time. I hardly get to see you and vice versa…so, thanks again. We do appreciate every single help. Soon, once again, we will be giving back to the community as well. Hopefully some day.”


The story so far…

St Werburghs Foodshare 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.
