TBC is a partner church in the Trussell Trust South Gwynedd Area Foodbank. Since 2013 TBC has been privileged to support the Area Foodbank by helping to collect donations and to help deliver donations to the main Area Foodbank warehouse.
The Area Foodbank helps needy individuals and families in Barmouth, Dolgellau, Fairbourne, Tywyn and beyond.
The Trussell Trust runs a network of over 400 foodbanks, giving emergency food and support to people in crisis across the UK, where thirteen million people live below the poverty line. During 2018 they gave 1,109,309 three-day emergency food supplies to people in crisis.
Give help to the Foodbank:
The Foodbank always needs donations of particular foods. Find out which foods the foodbank currently needs. There is a box in the church building for you to deposit your donations, but you can also donate at Advent Bookshop on the High Street, Tywyn Cinema and Co-op.
The Foodbank greatly appreciates financial gifts as sometimes it finds certain products are in short supply. Some contributors have set up regular monthly payments. Find out more about how to give financially.
