Since then they have moved to the Scout Hut on Derby Road but with the Scouts and other groups that meet there being able to re-start from September, they need to find a new location by 29th of August. 
We need someone to offer us a bigger space for a few months while we find a permanent home
"We need someone to offer us a bigger space for a few months while we find a permanent home", said Gerrie Messer, Kingsbridge Food Bank, "We're applying to funding like its going out of fashion!"
The team need enough space for nice fridges and freezers, enough space for them to set up their 'supermarket' on their drop-in days, a bit of desk space and a kitchen.
