This Outlet was one of the first of the North Cotswold Food bank outlets. The Campden Food bank serves those in need and distress in Chipping Campden, Blockley, Willersey, and Mickleton.
During 2020 the Outlet assisted 233 Adults and 236 children. Referrals to the Outlet came from local Schools, Housing Associations, Medical Centre’s and local Churches.
As well as supplying emergency food for those in need the Outlet also recognises that it is very important to offer clients ‘signposting’ to Agencies who can offer hands on assistance and advice to clients.
During 2020 very generous donations of cash and food were received from the local community, individuals, businesses, and schools. Collection points for product donations are available in the local Post Office, One Stop shop, and the Baptist Church.
Thanks to the generosity of local Donors such as the Chipping Campden Community Trust during 2020 the Outlet has been able to extend what is offered to clients. In addition to food the parcels now contain household products, toiletries, and seasonal specialty goods. The Outlet is also able offers regular Fresh Meat and Vegetable vouchers, eggs and bread.
