Who runs the Foodbank?

Formally we are part of the Stroud District Basics Bank which is a registered charity with the goal to end poverty in our local community. The Basics Bank was set up by a network of Churches from across the Stroud District who were motivated by their Christian faith to support people in our communities who face crisis. The Foodbank was set up to fulfil the words of Jesus- "for I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat”. 

The goal is to provide hope during times of hopelessness and make sure that every member of our District knows that they are loved and cared for. We exist to help people reach the potential for life in all its fullness and maintain dignity in troubled circumstances. At the Foodbank this is done through the provision of food, companionship and signposting into the wider care community.

We are a community organisation and work in partnership with schools, other community groups and professional care providers. This sense of partnership is one of our core values and we are committed to being part of the wide network of support and care for people in the District of Stroud. We believe that through working together we will be able to be more effective and help more people. We are committed to the principle of equality regardless of race, colour, ethnic or national origin, religious belief, political opinion or affiliation, sex, marital status, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, age or disability. We will work with anyone and will support anyone in crisis.
