Cambridge City Foodbank: A Different Way to Help

It is extremely important to remember everyone who uses the Foodbank. In 2019, 9,243 three-day emergency food supplies were given to people in crises, and the need continues. We have seen so many pictures of people stockpiling, but for others it is a case of hoping to be able to feed their families. The Foodbank is always grateful for your support, but maybe you could think of doing it in a different way – by donating money! This way, urgently needed goods can be bought.

There are 2 ways of helping: Donate with Virgin Money Giving (the charity’s preferred option) where 100% of your donation goes to the charity. To donate, please click here. OR set up a standing order here. Both of these options can be cancelled at any time. Read more
