Danbury Mission Foodbank

Danbury Mission are partnering with this group and Maldon Food Pantry to coordinate a food bank service for Danbury.  Food donations can be taken directly to Danbury Mission and left in a collection box from 10am.  Enough food is kept to provide food packages for Danbury, and any excess is sent to Maldon.  Local supermarkets have suspended their collections at this point but they may be reinstated if required.

Anyone in need of support through the Food Bank please do reach out through our confidential Helpline numbers or complete this form:
