Shepway Foodbank, a project of the Rainbow Centre, already runs Foodbank centres in Folkestone and New Romney and we are now opening a new one in Lydd.
The Shepway Foodbank Centre in Lydd will be open every Friday 18:30 – 19:30 at Hardy Hall, Skinner Road.
To access food from the foodbank you MUST have a Foodbank Voucher, these can be issued in various places. If you/your children attend either Lydd Primary School or Lydd’le Stars Childrens Centre, they can assess you for a Shepway Foodbank voucher, in all other cases (in Lydd) you can contact Rev Chris Maclean at the All Saints Rectory, Park Street on Mon, Wed, Thu or Fri 10:00 – 16:00. You can also find out other places across the district to get foodbank vouchers here.
When you arrive, we’ll welcome you with a warm drink and our trained volunteers will chat with you about your situation. We’ll also discuss any dietary needs you may have and exchange your foodbank voucher for a parcel of three days of emergency food. We’ll also help to support you in any other ways that we can. Our foodbank centre offers a cafe style environment and our aim is to provide non-judgemental support at the point of crisis.
If you need further information you can contact the Foodbank Manager on 07913 573403.
