New home for the food bank later this year

After six years in Bishops Waltham the food bank is set to move to a new home in Wickham.

Since early 2015, when the food bank was opened, we have made our home at the Bishops Waltham Youth Hall, but we have known for some time that the building was likely to be demolished and that we would have to move out.

Despite extensive enquiries we have been unable to find alternative premises in Bishops Waltham.

We have now accepted the opportunity presented to us by Wickham Community Centre to move there as they have a room we can use on 2 days each week and storage space for all our food supplies.

This move is likely to occur during May and June.

We will let you have more details nearer the time, once we have a definite date confirmed.  In the meantime we are trying to carefully manage our food stocks to keep the amount we will need to move to a minimum. 

Sainsbury’s will remain as the principal “drop off point” for donations.
