Food Banks

Billingham Food Bank

The Trussell Trust foodbank network works in partnership with local churches and organisations to bring foodbanks to communities across the UK. You will usually have to obtain a voucher to obtain a food parcel which you can get through care professionals such as doctors, health visitors, social workers, CAB and police identify people in crisis and issue them with a foodbank voucher. Foodbanks are available in Billingham and Stockton.

The Moses Project

The project provides daily support, mentoring and activities for hundreds of men who have become disengaged from society, perhaps because of their addictions or unforeseen circumstances such as unemployment or mental illness. Every day we serve cooked meals (Mince & Dumplings/Pasta Bakes etc – cooked by our volunteers) and prepare food parcels for the needy.

Salvation Army

The food distributed in each food parcel is paid for by donations given to The Salvation Army churches (Corps), including some from other local churches. Salvation Army churches also fundraise throughout the year. Parcels are made up of non-perishable items such as tinned food and items such as bread, cheese and butter are kept in the freezer until needed. Parcels may also include basic toiletries and toilet paper.
