Run by Durham Christian Partnership, and part of a nationwide network of foodbanks supported by The Trussell Trust, the food bank welcomes regular and one-off support.
In particular the food bank needs long life fruit juice, UHT milk, custard, jam, sugar, and rice pudding.
Lindsey Brown, Office Manager at the Durham Christian Partnership, said: “We are here to help anyone who is facing hunger. For the parents skipping meals so their children can eat, for the tenant forced to go hungry just so they can pay the rent, for the elderly person making the stark choice between heating and eating.”
The food bank provides emergency food for three days along with practical support to help people in crisis, and signposts to other services to help people recover, rebuild their lives, and break the cycle of poverty.
Other ways to help include organising a fundraising event or donating food or equipment to help with the day-to-day running of the food bank.
Durham Food Bank is located at Unit 7/9 First Avenue, Drum Industrial Estate, Chester le Street, DH2 1AG. The opening hours are Monday to Friday from 9.30am to 2pm.
