Food Bank

Folkestone Town Council are pleased to support the work of the Folkestone Rainbow Centre by hosting a Food Bin in the Town Hall.

Any items that the community collect will be received by the Rainbow Centre team at their warehouse prior to being sent out to their Distribution Centres, Foodstop and the Winter Shelter.

During the year, the stock needs of the warehouse changes due to differing factors and seasons. For example, during the winter months they gear up to supply nourishing and warming food to those in desperate need. 

If you are able to contribute to the Rainbow Centre Food Bin, either occasionally or regularly, a little or a lot, you will be making a direct difference to those in real need in our community.

You can drop your donations into the Town Hall during our opening hours of Monday to Saturday 10am to 4pm, and they will be collected from there by the Rainbow Trust team.

Please ensure all food is well within date and unopened as we are not allowed to distribute out of date food.

Food needed includes:

Breakfast Cereals, Soup, Pasta, Pasta Sauce, Rice, Tinned Beans, Tinned Meat, Tinned Vegetables, Tinned Fruit, Tinned Custard, Instant Mash, Biscuits, Snacks, Longlife Milk, Longlife Juice, Tea & Coffee
