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 in Kenilworth in 2012 (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, working together towards stopping hunger in our local area.
Warwick and Leamington Foodbank and Kenilworth Foodbank joined together on 1st January 2017 to become Warwick District Foodbank.
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.
