THAT provide high quality food packs put together from donated and bought food items. We include a large variety of foods and some basic toiletries in each pack. Each pack is designed to last 8 days.Pictured on the right is an example of one of our packs, although each pack varies according to the client's needs and what we have in stock. Pet food and baby food are available for packs.
We also provide special packs for clients who are street homeless that contain items that can be prepared without the use of a cooker or kitchen equipment.
We now have fresh food available donated by supermarkets.
SPECIAL NEWS... If you struggle during the school summer holiday when free school meals stop just get ONE referral (eg a phone call to us from the school) just before the holiday begins and we will help you and your family right through.
As well as Food packs, we also provide Home Start packs for clients who may be moving into a new home, supported lodgings, sheltered accomodation or a B&B but are not able to purchase essential household items.
Our Home Start packs include bedding, crockery (plates, bowls, knives and forks etc.), cleaning products, bathroom products, a kettle and toaster, and pots, pans and cooking equipment.
We also offer electricity and gas key top ups.
Home Start Packs
Thanks to M&S we have a newly refurbished office where clients will find a friendly, non-judgemental welcome and be offered refreshments.
Find us just inside Queensway, Buckland.
Just pop in for a chat about what we can offer.
If you need food, toiletries or home start items ask for a telephone or email referral which you can get from CAB, schools, doctors, Family Services, Salvation Army, Homestart, Social Services, Job Centre, District Council Housing Dept etc.
At THAT, we believe that the most effective way to alleviate poverty is by working with our clients to help tackle the underlying issues that are causing them financial difficulties.
Our volunteers are always happy to offer information for better outcomes to improve the lives of members of the community.
We can also help our clients take action and will refer clients to organisations who can help with issues that we can't.
Our volunteers are always happy to sit down for a friendly chat and a cup of tea if you have any questions or worries. Just drop by our shop.
