  • Mission statement

    Founded in 2012, Nourish is a volunteer-led charity and company limited by guarantee. Our vision is that "No one need be hungry in South Tonbridge and Borough of Tunbridge Wells".

    We promote the relief of financial hardship among people living in Tunbridge Wells, South Tonbridge and surrounding villages by providing people with short-term emergency food that they could not otherwise afford through lack of means.

    We work collaboratively with, and for the benefit of, the inhabitants of Tunbridge Wells, South Tonbridge and the surrounding areas without the distinction of sex or age of political, religious or other opinions, in order to meet local need, challenge social exclusion and to deliver an effective and proactive service that empowers people to access appropriate support and the resources to help them move forward with their lives in a manner which may be considered by law to be charitable.

    We work with other local foodbanks and regularly review our areas of coverage in response to need.

    It's not just about food. The consequences of food poverty can be far reaching, including increased crime, loss of tenancies, mental health problems and family breakdown. Nourish can help provide more positive outcomes by offering a period of respite and an opportunity for change
