MATT22 started in 2020 as our social response to Covid. Inspired by Jesus' command, in Chapter 22 of Matthew's gospel to love our neighbour, we wanted to make sure that the most vulnerable in our neighbourhood were being supported.
We've helped with emergency food parcels; signposted addicts to counselling; helped with energy poverty; delivered roast dinners to the isolated; teamed up with local charity, Grow for Life; and, in partnership with other organisations, helped to establish a community pantry.
In September 2022, we opened at new Food Bank Hub in partnership with Genesis. It's open every week on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 12:30pm and 2:30pm.
