Welcome to the Daventry Food Bank
It's hard to believe that poverty and hunger really exists here in the UK in this day and age. The truth is, it's a growing reality. So much so that Food Banks are springing up all over the country. It is reported that 1 in 5 people
live below the poverty line here in the UK; that's 1 in 5 having to choose between food or gas/electricity!
All it takes is a sudden, unexpected event – a bereavement, illness, redundancy or theft – to throw people into a genuine crisis.
The Daventry Food Bank was started with a view to provide emergency/essential food supplies to residents in Daventry District until other parts of the social care infrastructure come in to play.
Since we started in 2010, we have been called on to assist thousands of families and individuals who have found themselves in a place where they simply have nothing to feed themselves or their children.
