Richmond Academy is host to Swale Foodbank’s very first Sheppey-based foodbank centre.
The foodbank is open from 4pm-6pm every Thursday and is for anyone to attend – foodbank vouchers will be needed in order to get a food parcel.
Vouchers are available from schools rights across the island, local charities such as Porchlight and Imago, social services, Early Help, Citizens Advice Swale, CAP and other organisations such as Forward Trust and probation. If one of these can act as your referral agency, please speak to them directly and ask for a foodbank voucher. If you are unsure, then the Swale Foodbank team can advise on this – please call them on 07486 370709.
