Love Through Authentic Service
About Food Bank
Give Project is the banner under which our food and clothes bank, along with various other aspects of community outreach, reside. It runs on a weekly basis and seeks to resource it's clients with the relational, practical and spiritual support they need.
Now entering it's fourth successful year Give Project continues to grow and expand, both in terms of clients and volunteers, and in addition to the scope and breadth of assistance it can offer.
Operating out of City Church, Give Project carries the heartbeat of the church and the DNA of the Christian faith. It seeks to positively impact the community and offer hope and love through authentic service and friendship.

Past, Present & Future...
The food bank opened on 15th January 2014. More than three years down the road we are averaging over a hundred new clients every year.
The food bank is resourced by a number of contributors, including members of City Church itself, Nandos, Ocado and Greggs. Historically we have also had donations from London Colney Primary School during Harvest Festival.
Due to the increasing popularity of Give Project and the willingness of it's volunteers, we have seen great fruitfulness and impact in the lives of many. Last year Give Project ran an Alpha Course and we had the pleasure of watching new friends come to find faith in Jesus. Since 2016 we have been serving hot meals to all of our visitors, which has been warmly received.
We are also helping other local Churches with the collecting and delivering of the ocado food donations, assisted by the generous support of St Albans Van Hire .
We have tremendous hope and plans for the future. Alongside running another Alpha we are currently pursuing CAP (Christians Against Poverty) training for some of our volunteers to offer debt advice.
Our latest project is to open a monthly medical clinic. We have a paramedic and a registered nurse to assist the Give project at this exciting time. Clients from the food bank will be able to ask advice, discuss any medical issues they have and receive minor medical treatment if necessary.
