As we operate with very few rules for out members, we ask that you honour the following:
1. Honestly need our help. 2. Register with us. 3. Use only one food bank per week.
4. Request food hamper and Christmas gifts from only one organization.

We Listen

We are not a big, impersonal organization. We are real people with the time to hear what you need.

We Coordinate

We have food & clothes for you and your children. And we can help you navigate outside services too.

We Support

We are here for you for as long as you need us and we never judge a person by their circumstances.

You Refresh

We have the coffee on. We really do! A table, a chair, some snacks. It's a great place to start your visit.

You Renew

We figure out everything you need. Together we help you to get on a comfortable, respectable footing.

You Restore

We make sure you are OK! And once you get to that place you can face the world with your head up.

 

About Us

WE DON'T STAND ALONE and are all 100% volunteer with NO outside support from agencies! The Bewdley Food Bank officially known as Community Works In Hamilton Township (CWIHT) does not receive funding of any kind. We are an independent organization that relies solely upon the generosity of others.

We are grateful for the support of individuals and liase with area Churches, Businesses, Service Clubs, Schools, Local Fire Department and the Police Services Board of Hamilton Township.

As a Fundraiser and Community Service we also run the Arena Canteen for children's tournaments.

Please DONATE FUNDS - DONATE FOOD & GOODS - VOLUNTEER.

It's humbling, we get it. FOOD INSECURITY affects 860,000 people a month in Canada forcing them to use a food bank. 79,000 people each month access a food bank for the first time. 36% are children and more that one third are under 18 years of age. 16% of people in need have income from recent or current employment.

These are more than numbers & percentages - these are your neighbours! Percentages according to Food Banks Canada HungerCount 2016.

Our Facilities

We are MORE THAN A FOOD BANK because we believe there's so much more needed...like clothes, hygiene items and even toys. Community Works (The Bewdley Food Bank) draws people from all over Northumberland County. Our space is provided by Hamilton Township.
