Wyre Forest Food bank

Since 1999, Franche Community Church's main mission has been its established Food Bank, providing a service to the wider community with emergency food packs containing items for two to three days, depending on people's circumstances. The Food Bank is currently managed by John Balcon.

For a quick briefing on what we do and why, please click on the video link below to hear from our very own Paul Guille, who previously ran the Wyre Forest Food Bank with his wife Barbara. He was interviewed on BBC Hereford and Worcester on the Kate Justice show on August 4, 2020.

The food boxes are distributed to individuals and families as recommended by several local agencies who partner with FCC to help people in need for various reasons.

We are the only food bank that distributes the boxes via a volunteer delivery service over the course of at least four weeks. We are always grateful for any donations, as well as help with packing. Much of what we do relies on the support of many volunteers, for which we are extremely thankful. Food donations can be dropped off by arrangement, or feel free to visit us when the church is open (see the 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, but we will only accept referrals from one of the social and health support workers in the Wyre Forest (such as CAB, HUB, home-workers, etc.).

We operate strictly on a referral basis and cannot simply provide 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, please contact us using the details below.

If you would like to volunteer for either our deliveries or to come and help, please email us below or click our Facebook button and send us a message.
