Corsham Food bank – How it works
Our Food bank receives donations of food from all the local churches in our area, given by members of the congregation. In addition we are given monetary donations, most of which is used to buy items of food, supplementing what has been donated.

Our food and donations
We store all our donations and issue them in proportion to the needs of the particular client. We try to issue food that will contribute to a balanced and nutritious diet.
Although we can store only dried, packet and tinned food, we give vouchers to enable our clients to get fresh milk, bread, spread, eggs, meat and fish from the Co-op in Corsham, fresh fruit and vegetables from the Corsham Greengrocer and toiletries and hygiene products from a local chemist.
