The Community Cupboard
Providing emergency and non judgmental aid, we aim to reduce the stigma surrounding asking for help and ensure that a safe and welcoming space is available in our local community.
As an independent Food Bank and signposting service, we do not operate a voucher system and individuals and families can refer to us themselves by making contact directly.
Our proven relationships with over 20 different local and national agencies ensures that we are able to signpost users to further support, allowing underlying issues to be addressed.
Offering a warm space and a cup of tea, someone is always here to listen.
We hold regular events throughout the year to engage with our local schools, groups and communities and to ensure that we remain a warm and friendly place to seek support.
Areas: North West Kent and surrounding areas

I have been through the Community Catalysts programme in Kent - 13/10/2023 Community Catalysts runs a local development programme in the area where this entrepreneur is operating that offers help, advice and support to local people. As part of this programme this enterprise/venture has signed up to the Doing It Right Standards. This does not mean that they have been accredited or approved in any way by the local council or by Community Catalysts and people should continue to do their own checks.
