The Manna House Day Nursery works in partnership with The Manna House Charity and Tamworth Elim Church to provide a wide variety of community projects catering for all ages.
Today in Tamworth there are families struggling to put food on the table. For people on low incomes, a sudden crisis – redundancy, benefit delay or even an unexpected bill – can mean going hungry. Every day parents skip meals to feed their children, and people are often forced to choose between paying the rent and eating. Foodbank provides emergency food and support to local people in crisis. Since Tamworth Foodbank opened in 2011, it has given away over 75 tonnes of food to local people. This averages out at 17 people being fed every single day of every week for nearly 5 years!
Frontline care professionals such as doctors and social workers provide Foodbank vouchers to people in crisis. Foodbank clients bring their voucher to the centre where it is redeemed for three days' emergency food. Volunteers meet clients over a cup of tea or coffee and are able to signpost people to agencies able to help them solve their longer-term problems.
