Thanet Food Banks

Please see attached information regarding Food Banks in Thanet.

 

Thanet Food Banks 

At a time when our community is faced with the most trying of circumstances, we want to be able to share with you the Foodbank organisations in place across Thanet. These have been set up to support the most vulnerable members of our community – and will be needed now more than ever. 

If you are able to support these extremely worthwhile services, your donations of food and/or hygiene products would be gratefully received. Conversely, if you find that you are in need of the assistance of a local Foodbank, please see details below of where they are situated in and across Thanet. We will continue to share this information across our websites and social media platforms. 

If you would like advice or further support, please contact your Head of School in the first instance who will endeavour to offer assistance to you and your family.

The Kent Together team can also support families who have made applications for Universal Credit but have not yet been awarded the benefits.   Until the benefits have been awarded, Free School Meals cannot be claimed.  If you find yourself in this situation, please contact the Kent Together Team and they can support you,
