Community Food Initiative

COVID-19 Lockdown Restrictions
The Food Initiative is operating on Wednesday only during the lockdown restrictions. Please contact us if you need more information.

The Community Food Initiative is open every Wednesday from 12-1.30pm (but not just now on Fridays from 8.30-9.30am) for the distribution of goods. No referrals are needed – please just come along if you are in need. Due to Covid restrictions we are not currently able to offer refreshments.

St Salvador’s Community Food Initiative started in December 2012 and is open to anyone (families or individuals) experiencing financial difficulties or going through a crisis.


We give out bags containing dry and tinned food and other basic items.  Those receiving a bag are asked to give their name, address and any other relevant details.  Some people are able to make a donation to help fund the project – but it is not necessary.

Tea and coffee are available at the Wednesday openings as well as the opportunity to chat, meet new people and gain information about other local support services.

If you would like to find out more or to support the Food Initiative in some way, please get in touch, and if you know anyone who could benefit from this service, please encourage them to come along.

This initiative is funded from St Salvador’s resources with  help from other local churches and individual donations.
