How to Get Help

Windsor Foodshare was initiated by the Churches in Windsor in October 2013. It is part of Windsor Christian Action, a registered charity.  It is centred around the desire for fairness and where there is abundance for it to be shared.  Our approach is to treat everyone as equal and make no judgements on how need has arisen.

CRITERIA
We seek to help individuals or families where one or more people in the home are not able to eat one of more days during a week because they cannot afford it.
