First Bangor partners with Storehouse North Down in fighting food poverty in our community.
Storehouse North Down is supported by local churches, statutory and voluntary agencies, community groups, businesses and individuals. They aim to “help by providing emergency food hampers by referral from our partners”.
Having plenty of food in the cupboards is something we can easily take for granted. However, thousands live close to or at the edge of their finances. So when personal crisis hits – finding the next meal can be virtually impossible. Storehouse North Down exists, as a charity, to be a real answer for those families and individuals who have no safety net.
Over 1,500 hampers have been provided to families in need in this last year. 6,500 hampers have been provided since September 2012.
