Job Description

About Us

We are a Christian organisation motivated by Jesus’ teaching on poverty and injustice. We operate according to Christian principles of compassion, honesty, integrity, openness, kindness and care of all people, regardless of backgrounds or beliefs. We believe in turning faith into practical action, living out God’s love for the poor.

Whilst we are a Christian organisation, we serve people of all faith groups and beliefs or none. We are passionate about inclusion and being non-judgemental is central to what we do. We believe that everyone has the right to have food on their plate, dignity, skills, a chance to work and hope for the future.

Redbridge foodbank is a project for the prevention or relief of poverty in Redbridge and surrounding areas, primarily by the provision of food, also including related additional services and assistance aiming to break the cycle of poverty.

We aim to:

  • relieve hunger and poverty in our local community by feeding people in crisis
  • promote social inclusion by supporting people who find themselves in a crisis situation where they are unable to feed themselves or their families
  • advance education, training and retraining among unemployed people
  • develop the capacity and skills of members of the community so they are equipped to identify and meet their own needs to participate in society
