As of 5th April 2022, our church is the Langley distribution centre for the Slough Food Bank. We aim to help local people in crisis.
Donations are made to Food Bank by the general public and some businesses.
Those who are in critical need of food can be referred from one of many agencies. The distribution centres can only give out food to those with a referral.
Unfortunately, the distribution centres are not collection points for those donating food. The best way is to place donated items in the allocated boxes at many supermarkets.
To find out more about how the Food Bank – how to acquire a voucher- what can be donated - is to look on the Slough Food Bank website
