Update from Sarah Hayes - Project Manager Sittingbourne Food Bank

The Sittingbourne Food Bank would like to thank all those at Holy Trinity who have supported us with donations of food and by volunteering.

In 2015 we fed 353 people and so far this year we have already fed 299 people.

We are here to help local people in crisis. This can be due to many things including, but not limited to, changes or delays in benefits, unemployment, bereavement, illness, working families on low incomes, debt and self-employed.

If you know someone who you think might be in need of help please tell them about us. For more details please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or telephone 07486 370709.

We are always on the look out for new volunteers. If you would like to volunteer please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or telephone 07486 370709.

Update from Sue Hislop - Project Manager Sittingbourne Food Bank

I would like to pass on all our thanks from The Sittingbourne Foodbank to all those at Holy Trinity who have supported us from when we started just over 12 months ago

In 2015 we fed 353 people with a third of this number being children. Without the donations that we have received we would have been unable to help feed the people of Sittingbourne that are in crisis.

In 2016 we plan to sign up more agencies so that we can reach more people

Philippians 2:3-4 NLT - Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.
