Feeding local people in crisis.
Your donations enable us to provide three days of emergency food to local people in crisis.

Moulsham Lodge Methodist Church is now registered as a Chelmsford Foodbank Collection centre. Alongside the Hymn Book shelves you will find a permanent, suitably labelled, collection bin for your non-perishable food donations. You can now drop your donations into the church on Thursday mornings from 10am until noon whilst the coffee shop is open. Come in and have a cuppa as you drop off your non-perishable food donations, you will receive a warm welcome. Thank you.

Close to the tills in the Gloucester Ave Co-op we also have a collection point trolley where you can also leave your donations.

Both these sites are emptied on a regular basis and taken to the Chelmsford Foodbank where they can be put to immediate use.

Since October 2012 MLMC, with support from our local Co-op, has donated several tons of non-perishable food items to the Chelmsford Foodbank.  Thank you.

Should you be able to volunteer help on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday morning at the Chelmsford Foodbank please contact Clive Pickett on for more information or apply direct on
