Nourish is a volunteer-led Community Food Bank, established in response to the increasing numbers of families unable to provide food after they have paid all the other necessary bills. Nourish provides food packages to these people, providing a free delivery service to anyone unable to collect them in and around Tunbridge Wells. Importantly, the project provides crisis intervention followed by signposting and support to the relevant agencies.
Nourish has followed the same model as DAVSS and obtained charitable status in November 2013. Nourish have over 50 volunteers and one full time manager who is a Town & Country resident. They are supporting 40-50 families per week. The vast majority of those supported are Town & Country residents.
Nourish won the Best Group ‘Love Where You Live Award’ which they were nominated for this by the Foundation. The prize for this award included a cheque for £500.
