Franche Community Church has an established Food Bank which provides a service to the wider community with emergency food packed with items for two to three days depending on people's circumstances.
They are distributed to individuals and families as recommended by several local agencies who partner with FCC in helping people who require support for a variety of reasons.
We are the only food bank that distribute the boxes, via a volunteer delivery service, over the course of 6 weeks. We are always grateful for any donations as well as help with packing. In fact, a great deal of what we do relies on the help of many volunteers, for which we are extremely thankful. Food can be donated by dropping it off by arrangement, or feel free to pop in when the church is open (see About Us page for details).
Our aim as a church is to serve the local community by bringing the joy, hope and blessing of the Christian faith to everyone in the Wyre Forest. If someone asks for help, we will try to respond in a practical and caring manner wherever possible. We do not use this as an opportunity to preach to vulnerable people, we do however simply see it as a practical giving of our faith.
We operate strictly on a referral basis and cannot simply give a food box to anyone without a reference from an associated agency or person. However, if you would like to find out more about the food bank, how you can help or who we expect a reference from, then please get in contact with us using the details below.
If you would like to volunteer for either our deliveries or to come and help pack, then please email below or click our Facebook button and send us a message. Check the events on Facebook for our next packing night, but we will be packing on the last Wednesday of each month at 7:00pm unless notice is given. See you there!
