Walton Charity is part of the Walton and Hersham Food Bank network, a partnership with St Mary’s with St Johnís Church in Walton and St Peter’s in Hersham. The Walton and Hersham Food Bank aims to supply an emergency 3-day food parcel to families and individuals experiencing crisis.
The Walton and Hersham Food bank is a successful partnership, providing parcels of food to last three days to people in crisis or financial difficulty. We particularly help those who have recently had an unexpected change in circumstances.
Most food parcels are collected from one of our distribution points, however some Food Bank clients require their parcel to be delivered to their homes.
The Food Bank relies on donations from members of the community and corporate groups. If you would like to donate to the Food Bank please bring any items to the Walton Charity offices between the hours of 9am to 5pm, Mondays to Fridays. Please note that the entrance to the offices at Mayfield is on West Grove road. Please click here for the office location map.
For large (e.g. corporate) collections we are able to collect from your location, if arranged in advance. We are particularly looking for non-perishable food items such as tinned vegetables, pasta and soup. Please click here for a more extensive list.
If you would like leaflets to advertise the food bank in your offices/work premises for a donation drive, please contact the offices and we will by happy to arrange that with you.
Individuals facing a crisis, who for whatever reason do not have enough food can approach the food bank.
In most circumstances we only accept applications for food parcels by referral from a recognised voluntary sector or statutory agency. In extreme circumstances, self referral may be accepted.
The Food Bank aims to provide assistance within 24 hours of the initial application wherever possible.
To apply for a food parcel please contact the Charity offices on 01932 220242 during office hours.
