The foodbank was there when we really needed it, it was an absolute lifeline.


Combatting poverty & hunger in the UK

SCF was one of the churches which initiated the Southend Foodbank. Members of the Fellowship support the Foodbank as volunteers and we collect donations at our church Centre. The food bank is part of a national network of foodbanks under the umbrella of The Trussell Trust providing emergency food supplies for families in crisis. One of our church leaders, Peter Burgess, serves as a trustee for the foodbank. For more about Southend Foodbank please visit
