Wow, wow, wow! We are utterly humbled by the generosity that has been pouring in, Bristol really is a very special place where people's hearts are first through the door. Last week we ran our very first Food Share from the new location at St Werburghs Community Centre and it was a real pleasure to see so many of our families make the move with us. We are now welcoming families from Cabot Primary School, Glenfrome Primary School and St Werburghs Primary School to sign up to the service, so if you know anyone who might be interested please get in touch by emailing us on:

This week we had an INCREDIBLY generous commitment of support from BRISTOL FOOD UNION, they will be supporting us to ensure we can get plenty of fresh produce to our families throughout the whole summer. So important and hugely appreciated.

Thank you also to everyone who has continued to drop-off donations and offered to help by volunteering, together we can (and will) get through this!

We are so grateful and in awe of the kindness and generosity this crisis is inspiring.

Jess and I just want to shout out a HUGE thanks to James Taylor (United Communities) and Graham Oliver (Solon South West Housing Association) for their help in making this project possible! Of course none of this would have been possible without the incredible hard work and proactive mindset of Debbie Fisher, Jon Barr and Zoe Davidson (not pictured) from St Barnabas Primary School.

We will be moving across to St Werburghs Community Centre on Thursday 23rd July and continue to welcome donation drop-offs every Wednesday & Thursday.

Thanks also to everyone who has dropped off food and household items over the last few weeks or helped us by distributing flyers.

Here I am receiving an enormous donation from Ahmaddiya Muslim Community Bristol - they turned up with a car full!!

All donations (no matter how big or small) are enabling us to make a real difference by supporting families in need, we can't say this enough... THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

Helping local families in a troubling time.

The Community Food Share was set up as a small scale project in response to the difficulties faced by many in our neighbourhood. Since Covid 19 has brought disruption and uncertainty to family life, St Barnabas school saw that the Community Food share needed to be made more widely available to all those in connection with the school in this tricky time. Essentially it is about uniting our community and being able to share what’s on our tables.

Our aim is to continue the amazing work St Barnabas has done and bring the Food Share to more families in the area.
