Barking Foodbank CYP Holiday

Hope Family UK, via its Barking Foodbank Project provides an exciting opportunity for thirty children aged 8 to 14 to spend the summer holidays volunteering with the charity.  As well as engaging in fun activities, the children explore what it means to volunteer and why it is important to volunteer.  Each child is expected to put in 24 hours of volunteering in our foodbank and clothes bank and will be presented with a certificate upon completion.

Starting Tuesday 7th August to Friday 17th August for the first group of fifteen children and August 21st to August 31st for the second group of fifteen children, the scheme promises to be an immersive experience stimulating children to become lateral thinkers as well develop social, emotional and character building skills. By spending time outside their comfort zone, they get a chance to see new life perspectives, meet with other children and experience novel situations they might not otherwise get to see. The valuable skills they learn and use during the programme are acknowledged and reinforced on Rewards Friday.

Rewards Friday: On the Friday of each week, the children are nominated by their peers for exemplifying skills they have learnt during that week and will get a prize. Friday is also the day we take a break and go out touring various child-friendly installations, museums, galleries and parks in the city.

The Barking Foodbank Children and Young People Holiday Volunteering Scheme costs £25 per child per week for lunch and outings. However, funding may be available for children on a case by case basis.

Mercy Worldwide Trust is a not-for-profit organisation working to help victims of conflict or natural disaster around the world.

In an effort to support our work here in Barking over 50 volunteers from Mercy Worldwide Trust have redistributed over 1.5 tons of food from Barking Tesco to those in our community in need. We wish to say a very big thank you to all staff members of Mercy Worldwide Trust and pray that you continue to share the love of God.


Corporate Volunteering From Brit Insurance

In July 2018, we were delighted to welcome Brit Insurance, a market-leading global insurance company, to the Barking Foodbank. This corporate visit enabled the team at Brit Insurance to see the vital support we give to members of our community who are experiencing crisis and allowed them to build effective relationships with each other by working towards a common shared charitable cause. They managed to raise a huge £1000.00 worth of food and added this to our stock helping us to deliver food to those in need within our community.

Our work is changing lives
