Not found anywhere else in Stone and without it people would have to go to Hanley or Stafford (£5.50 bus fare).
It offers a choice of food (which avoids waste) so people can take what they will use & recipe cards to provide help and inspire confidence.
There is support to help identify the root causes leading to people needing to access the food bank and then practical help where possible to eliminate the cause (i.e help with budgeting), to avoid ongoing dependency in the future.
Food is donated by the Stone community via several donation boxes in the town; boxes are located in Morrisons, Barclays Bank, and St. Dominics RC Church.
Non-perishable food, toiletries and cleaning materials are regularly donated.
