We provide emergency food parcels to people in serious need in the greater Reading area. This is by referral only through local agencies. We have operated for over twenty years, way before ‘food banks’ became familiar words. We now provide up to 100 parcels per week to families, couples and individuals.
ReadiFood is a member of the Independent Food Aid Network and not affiliated to the Trussell Trust.
We had been operating before “Food Banks” became ‘a thing’, so there was no advantage to joining and changing our well established methods.
Over the past 10 years Food banks both inside and outside the Trussell Trust network have been opening at an extraordinary and unmeasured rate.
New research by the Independent Food Aid Network has revealed that there are more 650 independently run food banks operating across the UK. When you add in all the Trussell Trust Food Banks and smaller Food Stores and outlets, this comes to a staggering over 2000 places where food is given away across the UK.
