Food Bank Update

Foodbank  - ACT (Alvaston Christians Together)

As part of the development of this existing Foodbank service running out of the Sure Start Centre on Cockayne Street, there is a proposal being made to the Act churches to fund a Derby City Mission Debt and Welfare Adviser for two sessions every month. This is part of a support hub vision that Sure Start and the ACT Foodbank team are seeking to implement. Developing this missional enterprise, by not only providing emergency food, but engaging in addressing the causes of the food poverty in the local community. Alongside this, Derby Community Bank (credit union) and Bolton Lane Baptists CAP Life skills sessions are also planning to join the support hub.


Foodbank – St MARYS         

There is now in place also, a referral system for those who are not able to access the Foodbank-ACT/Sure Start referrals. Those wishing to access this added food parcel service can do so by coming to St Mary’s Boulton on Thursdays between 11 AM and 1:30 PM, when the Foodbank Team will be on hand to help.
