Andover foodbank needed help to expand, so our colleagues rolled-up their sleeves and got involved. 

The foodbank at St John the Baptist RC Church, has seen more and more people visit since it opened in 2006.

People who need extra support regularly turn to the foodbank for essential supplies to help feed their families. The need for this additional help in Andover meant that the foodbank was too small, and the team needed to make it bigger. 

Our Customer Support Officers work closely with the foodbank and understand just how much of a lifeline it is for some of our customers. 

With this in mind, our colleagues set about helping with the project. Work to remove old shelving, paint the walls, input new electrical sockets, and install new shelving took a week to complete. 

The team at the foodbank are really pleased with the results and say that the extended foodbank is already making a big difference to the community. 

If you need help or know someone who does, contact your local foodbank for support.
