Salisbury Foodbank

Salisbury Foodbank


Launched in 2000, the Salisbury Foodbank was the first Trussell Trust Foodbank in the UK. Salisbury Catholic Churches, together with other local churches, have an established tradition of promoting and supporting its work.


Thirteen million people live below the poverty line in the UK with individuals going hungry every day for a range of reasons, from benefit delays to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income.


Salisbury Foodbank provides a minimum of 3 days emergency food and support to people in crisis in Salisbury. Referrals to the Foodbank are made through medical, social, church and other organisations.

Collection points for donated food can be found in St Gregory’s Church and St Osmunds Church.

Volunteers deliver the food to the Foodbank where items are weighed and logged.

The Foodbank website provides more information, and a list of food items currently in demand.
