St Anns and Sneinton Food Store

Posted on

We have directly witnessed a huge increase in the amount of people who come to us that have no food. They are either experiencing a crisis &/or have no means of support in place. These include families with young children, pensioners, disabled persons as well as those who are homeless or in a period of transition in their life.

Working in partnership with other agencies and volunteers from the local community, we have set up a food store to distribute food parcels to people in need in St. Anns and Sneinton communities.

The food store opened its doors last Thursday 13th December and gave out three parcels supporting eight people, five of which were children.  We intend to open again on Thursday 20th December and then on Thursday 10th January.

In the New year we will establish set opening times and a referral process. We will post on this website the other agencies in the City who will be referring to the food store.  Our aim is to be as flexible as possible, responding to individual needs as and when they occur.  However, in the short term the food store will have set distribution times and support those people without income I.e. benefit sanction, benefit not in place.

Each individual will be assessed by an experienced Advice worker who will offer support and representation where applicable.
