0800 Hungry is a not-for-profit voluntary organisation dedicated to ensuring those that are in need get fed.
0800 Hungry is a voluntary organisation totally committed to recovering food and grocery items and redistributing to people in need. As with the majority of most Charities the funding of rental for premises can be difficult to establish as we are all trying to help our communities. Because of this, our main sources of income are often disrupted so 0800 Hungry is existing only by the grace of God and the dedicated family of volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure those who hunger can be fed.
Missing out on two consecutive funding applications to cover our warehouse rental placed us in arrears and with future grants unable to be used for retrospective debt, finding money has become extremely difficult. Our main continuous struggle is paying the rent and this is our ‘elephant in the room’ that is causing us to face closure.
Should you feel that your money can help serve in supporting 0800 Hungry in our ministry to Canterbury then please give as we urgently need your help. Your donations will go towards paying for our urgent requirements which is our rent. However, going forth we need corporate and public funding to ensure our future will always remain open.
All raised funds will go towards rent arrears and any extra will help pay for future rent.
We appreciate any capacity of help and we hope we can always be saying “this is what we do”.
0800 HUNGRY is Canterbury's largest food bank, providing food and other household products to families in need throughout Canterbury.
Our 0800 Hungry help line is 0800 486479
