This year we held our first ever sponsored walk to raise funds for Windsor Foodshare On Saturday 27 April 2024 we ‘looped the lake’ at Virginia Water.

Thank you so much to everyone that took part and to everyone who has donated so generously.

The rain held off and everyone made it round the loop.

So far we have raised over ten thousand pounds.

We’re looking forward to making this an annual event.

Windsor Foodshare provides short term weekly help in the form of non-perishable foods, bread, eggs, fresh fruit, and vegetables to any local household in which due to a lack of funds there is a likelihood of an individual becoming hungry. Once a month we also provide toiletries and cleaning products.

Individuals and families can be issued vouchers by contacting one of our nominated referrers for up to four weeks, thereafter further vouchers are issued at the referrer’s discretion.

Referrers include Housing Services, Social Services, Faith Leaders, GP’s, Schools, Children’s Services, Mental Health Services, Probation Services, Community Wardens, Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Services, and CAB. A full list of referrers is given here.

Our service then works by distributing foods to those presenting vouchers at:

  • Alma Beacon, 73a Alma Rd, Windsor SL4 3HD on Tuesday afternoons between 1pm and 3pm
  • Dedworth Green Baptist Church, Smiths Lane, Windsor, SL4 5PE on Thursday afternoons between 1 pm and 3pm
  • Kerith Church, Fairacres Industrial Estate, Unit 3B Windsor, SL4 4LE on Thursday evenings between 6 pm and 7pm

As a charity we receive no guaranteed funding from central or local government and rely fully on financial and food donations from individuals, businesses, and retail outlets.

We can accept food donations at Dedworth Green Baptist Church from 9 am to 1.30 pm on Wednesday’s and 9 am to 3 pm on Thursday’s. Please come to the car park where you will see the entrance to Foodshare and ask for the Manager to hand over any donation which will be gratefully accepted.

If you are unable to get to Dedworth please see our food donations page for other drop off points or visit our Amazon Wish List to make on-line purchases. Cash donations can be made through Just Giving and bank transfer.
