FoodBank is Newest Town Partner
In recognition of its excellent work, the Town Council confirmed Chiltern FoodBank as its newest, official Town Partner at the Council meeting held on the 9th December.
The Chiltern Foodbank opened in 2011 and works with a variety of local agencies who meet people at risk of going hungry, including Citizens Advice, children’s centres and health visitors. These agencies refer people to the FoodBank by issuing them with a voucher for a food parcel.
A typical food parcel contains a minimum of three days of nutritionally balanced, non-perishable, tinned and dried foods that have been donated by the local community. Specific parcels can be provided for a range of dietary needs including people with diabetes, gluten intolerance, vegetarians and halall.
In 2018, the Chiltern FoodBank provided 2,315 three-day emergency food supplies to people in crisis.
