On 30th March 2020, Slough Foodbank received a grant from Ascot Racecourse’s Community Fund held via the Berkshire Community Fund for £6,000. The grant has enabled a quick delivery of £3,000 worth of foods supplies, ordered through Ascot’s food supply chain, that the Foodbank had been struggling to obtain. Slough Foodbank is doing everything possible to provide people in food poverty with three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food. People unable to afford food who have an electronic voucher from a referral agency are permitted to visit a Foodbank. Foodbank stocks are running very low and grants like this provide essential support in local communities.
