Reaching out to our community
As a church, we believe that love is the foundation of all things and Jesus Christ demonstrated this love by giving His life for our redemption. The church seizes the opportunity to extend love to city residents by distributing free hampers. This has in no small measure reduced hardship and loneliness at this time of the year. FLOJ commenced in 2005 and the feedback from the residents of Coventry has been overwhelmingly impressive.
Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. Coventry Foodbank provides a minimum of three days emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis. At present, there are 17 distribution centres in Coventry with at least one open every day in order to ensure access to food. We are open on Tuesdays from 2 to 4pm. Since Coventry foodbank opened its doors in 2011, we have fed over 53,000 people with almost half of them being children.
All the food is donated by the public and sorted by volunteers. Front line care professionals such as advice agencies and social workers identify people in crisis and issue food vouchers. At the centres, clients receive three days worth of nutritionally balanced, non-perishable food in exchange for their vouchers. In addition, our centre also provides on-date supermarket surplus food whenever available. We also make time to chat and to signpost clients to other helpful services such as clothes bank, job clubs and restart project. At our foodbank, we help prevent crime, housing loss, family breakdown and mental health problems as it's part of our vision to build generations with Godly character, raise rulers and market talents.
