MRCT is the overarching charity that the Harlow Foodbank comes under. They work in partnership with churches and schools to provide this valuable community resource. The Foodbank is designed to help individuals and families in crisis by providing free emergency food until the appropriate agencies are in a position to assist. Their aim is to engage with communities, introducing sustainable projects that enable marginalised people to break through their cycle of poverty. Tinned and dried food is collected from the public and “banked” in a warehouse. Food is then given to people in crisis as a result of referrals from registered care professionals, such as, Citizens Advice Centre, Safer Places, Harlow Council Front Line Services, Job Centre Plus, Spurgeons Children’s Centres, CDAT, Streets2Homes and other carers working in the front line.
