About our foodbank

Here is an introduction to our project.

Warwick and Leamington Foodbank came into existence in July 2013 as a result of discussions between various interested parties. It originally operated under the umbrella of St Paul’s Church in Leamington Spa before becoming a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) in April 2015.

Kenilworth foodbank was a project founded by local churches (St John’s, Methodists, St Francis and St Augustine’s, St Nicholas and St Barnabas, All Saints Leek Wootton, United Reformed Church, Heart of England Revival Church) and community groups in Kenilworth in 2012, working together towards stopping hunger in the local area.

Warwick and Leamington Foodbank and Kenilworth Foodbank joined together on 1st January 2017 to become Warwick District Foodbank.

Working within Warwick, Leamington & Kenilworth our vision is for Warwick District to have no need for a Foodbank. Our mission is to provide food & household essentials to those in crisis or living in chronic poverty in our locality.  Our values of compassion, justice, community & dignity are at the heart of our organisation.

Warwick District Foodbank is part of The Trussell Trust’s UK-wide foodbank network. It is supported by local churches, businesses, community groups, and individuals. The foodbank provides emergency food supplies and support to people in crisis in Warwick, Leamington and Kenilworth.
