About Us

Our passion at the Meon Valley Food Bank is to reflect the love and grace of Jesus by supporting people in our local community who, for whatever reason, are struggling to get by.

Through the generosity of churches, individuals, local shops, local schools, clubs and societies we are able to provide food parcels to both individuals and families with children. The food that we supply is a mix of tins and packets – enough for seven days!

Sue Pardon, who established the Meon Valley Food Bank in 2015, with Mike Salter who succeeded her as Chairman in March 2019.

If you would like to make use of our service, you will need to obtain a Food Voucher.  Vouchers can be obtained from our local referral agencies including Citizens Advice, Home-Start Meon Valley, schools, Winchester City Council, health visitors and other family support organisations.

Those in need may have up to four vouchers a year. We are of course more than happy to continue to help if more is needed but the agency must let us know.

We are open every Tuesday from 10am to 2pm, based in the Bishops Waltham Youth Hall, Malt Lane, opposite Budgens.

The Meon Valley Food Bank is entirely run by volunteers who are on hand to offer a cup of tea and a chat while food parcels are being prepared.
