Supporting us financially really helps!  Although we rely heavily on volunteers to do the work on the ground,  we inevitably have overheads – warehouse rent; salaries; utilities; vehicles.

We are very careful to ring-fence donations made to the Charity so that people giving to us can be assured that their money is being used for the purpose that it was given, whether that be the Food Bank, HousingStreet work or more generally to FCG as a Christian organisation.

ReadiFood has for a number of years received a small grant each year from Reading Borough Council via a Service Level Agreement under the Narrowing the Gap  / Meeting Basic Needs provision. The purpose of the grant is to pay towards the costs of providing food parcels to people within the Borough.  The grant is declining each year due to overall central government funding cuts.  It is to be hoped that as the years go by and the economy recovers that “Crisis Loans” will return and the Council departments will no longer need to rely on ReadiFood for their clients.

Setting up a regular standing order helps us budget
But of course we are not averse to a single donation no matter how small

But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a fraction of a penny. Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.” JESUS Mark 12:42 (TNIV)
