Food Bank

Please note these changes to our operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

EK Community Food Bank is still in operation, but in a very limited way. Below are the collection times and locations.

Please note the following restrictions for the safety of our staff, volunteers and users:

  • Collections will be at the front door only.

  • You must queue in a single file allowing plenty of space between you, the person in front & behind you.

  • No more than one person at a time can enter to collect a food bag.

  • Anyone who is a high risk must not be out, but rather should send someone else to collect their bag.

  • No one who has symptoms of COVID-19 or has been in contact with a person who has these or has had these previously should be at any of the collection points at any time.

Food Bank Times (2)

We are very grateful for the generosity people have shown, particularly at this time, to ensure we can continue to serve our community through this ministry. We are expecting that the pressure to provide for those in need will only increase at this time, we would appeal to anyone who can to keep donating food and toiletries, particularly these items:

  • Tinned Hotdogs

  • Tinned Vegetables

  • Tinned Potatoes

  • Tinned Fruit

  • Tinned Pudding (Rice pudding, custard, etc)

At the same time, we currently cannot accept any donations of clothes, toys, household items, etc, in order to reduce handling of non-essential items at this time.

If you would like to give online, you can do so by clicking

We would also ask anyone donating to please drop any donations at these supermarket donation points:

  • Sainsbury’s Kingsgate

  • Morrison’s Lindsayfield 

  • Morrison’s Stewartfield 

  • Tesco St leonards

  • Co-op Village

Thank you very much and may God give us grace and compassion at this time.
