Granborough Church Food Bank

The food bank is continuing to operate, and the demand for food is increasing during these difficult times.
As the church is now closed, we have moved the food bank crate to the front porch of Chapel House, 24, Winslow Road.  Please drop off your donations here as usual and we will ensure they are taken into Aylesbury on a regular basis. The front porch can get quite warm when the sun shines so please make sure that you do not leave items that might not cope with the heat e.g. chocolate, custard creams etc.

  • Only purchase goods from trusted retailers.
  • Be suspicious of requests for money upfront.
  • Do not give your bank card or bank details to a stranger.
  • Never write your PIN down.
  • Know who you’re dealing with – if you don’t know the person who’s offering you help, ask to be introduced by someone that you know and trust.
