foodstopFoodStop is a Guisborough Bridge food bank project. At Harvest-time 2011 the Bridge / Churches Together in Guisborough launched FoodStop, our response to the increasingly challenging financial situation facing individuals in our community. Through the Bridge (and specifically through our Tuesday Sunnyfield coffee mornings and our Thursday Soup and Roll) we have been providing 3-day emergency food parcels to those who may find themselves in temporary financial difficulties. We are using a voucher system and are liaising with Social Services and other agencies. We have now added an extra day [Friday morning 10-12] for emergency packages before the weekend.

We are collecting non-perishable food items all year round. If you would like to donate any food, please drop by the Methodist Church on a Thursday morning or use the collection points in Guisborough Library, Morrisons or Sainsburys Local.
