As a result, it operates within a structured framework that enables it to offer services consistent with those of other foodbanks in the network. The Trussell Trust provides guidance and support to the Arnold Foodbank, ensuring that the organization operates effectively and provides the finest community services possible.
Doctors, health visitors, social workers, and police officers identify individuals in need of foodbank services. The foodbank collaborates closely with local churches and community organizations to distribute food supplies. This ensures that the food bank reaches the greatest number of individuals in need.
In 2021, the Arnold Foodbank distributed 1,464 packages, demonstrating its ongoing efforts to assist those in need in the community. With the sustained support of volunteers, donors, and the broader community, the Arnold Foodbank can continue to assist those in greatest need.
