Glastonbury & Street Bridging the Gap Foodbank

By 8 April 2021April 20th, 2021No Comments

Bridging the Gap Foodbank was set up by the churches in Glastonbury in 2010 to help alleviate food poverty and serve those in need in the BA6/BA16 area. People can be referred by a variety of agencies, including the Job Centre, CAB, health professionals, housing associations, mental health services, police and ministers. Self-referrals are not accepted.

Approximately a week’s worth of food is provided for an individual or family, including fresh food as well as non-perishable items – delivered to the recipients by volunteers. Because Bridging the Gap is a small, local, independent charity, it can respond to specific needs such as vegetarian, gluten-free or vegan diets or those with no access to cooking facilities. Non-food items can also be supplied where requested such as nappies or hygiene items.
