WARWICK DISTRICT FOODBANK 

Provision of seven local Trussell Trust seeded foodbank distribution centres for the supply of emergency food parcels to local clients referred to the foodbank via frontline welfare and community support agencies. In addition we provide signposting referrals to other support agencies who may be able to assist the clients out of their particular crisis.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received modest backing from a grant maker
  • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender and dynamic in terms of composition

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
