Allison Whittaker (Community Centre Manager, Salvation Army)

In Bath we have a cafe, open to the public, at very affordable prices as our aim is to encourage people in to make them feel welcome and supported if the need arises.

We allow homeless people or people who have particular needs to eat in our cafe free of charge. We have a luncheon club on a Friday where we make a meal for around 30 people for a small charge.

We also give out food parcels to people who request them, especially for families who need fresh fruit and vegetables for the children.
