Paulton Food Bank

Published: 14 August 2018

 

NEW VENTURE TO COMBAT LOCAL POVERTY. Paulton Methodist Church, in cooperation with Somer Valley Foodbank, has just opened a new Foodbank Centre in “the cellar” which is in the building beside the garden just past the church car park, approaching the shops. This exciting venture came just in time for the school holidays when many families with children receiving free school meals experience particular hardship. It means that local people in crisis from any walk of life will no longer have to make costly journeys into the nearby town to access help in time of need. Food is provided upon receipt of a Foodbank voucher and these vouchers are held by local care professionals. The Foodbank is open every Wednesday from 11.30am to 1.30am.
