Volunteers will either speak to them straight away or ring them back as soon as possible if they leave a contact number. The Food Bank volunteers will then buy a basket of basic items from shops in Alston and deliver them. The small team of volunteers take confidentiality very seriously, and they will act with discretion. They may also be able to help with signposting to other services.
The Alston Moor Food Bank was set up 9 years ago by a group which included Les and Di Wallace and others. Over the years the demand for help with food has been modest, but very significant for those clients. With the recent rise in food and energy prices the Trustees want to make sure that anyone in need of an emergency food delivery is able to get that in our community.
