Community Food Banks

Broadwater School supports the Godalming and Villages Community Store situated at the Wilfred Noyce Centre in Godalming and St Mark’s Community Centre.  Please find details below.  If anyone needs support with obtaining a food parcel please contact Rachel Jones, HSLW on R.Jones@Broadwater.surrey.sch.uk

Godalming Town Council collaborated with the Farncombe & Godalming Coronavirus Assistance Group and the St Mark’s Food Bank to open the Godalming & Villages Community Store to support our community.  The Community Store is a volunteer-led service.

If you’ve become unemployed, furloughed or are waiting for Universal Credit this is likely to be a worrying time for you.  You may never have thought you would need a food bank or similar and for some this will be difficult to come to terms with.  The Community Store is about the community supporting its friends and neighbours during these unprecedented and difficult times.

The Community Store can assist with free basic food, personal hygiene, sanitary and domestic cleaning items.  The Community Fridge within the Store can also offer fresh produce as well as some frozen produce too.
