Storehouse is a practical service set up by Glasgow Vineyard to meet the immediate and long term needs of those who are destitute in the North and West of Glasgow, with a specific focus on Drumchapel, Knightswood, Anniesland and the surrounding areas. The aim is to give the assurance of food to those in greatest need. Storehouse food bank gives out food and toiletries hampers every Saturday morning (10.00 – 12.00) from the Vineyard Centre, Linden Street, in Anniesland.
The food and toiletries for Storehouse are donated to us by church members, friends, family, members of the public and local businesses, including Morrisons at Anniesland and Waitrose at Byres Road. Food makes up the bulk of the support we give, however, importantly, we also include essentials for sanitation such as dental care, as well as nappies and formula for babies. We want to ensure that all are guaranteed the basic items for health and hygiene.
Although Storehouse is firstly practical and tangible, it is also relational and we provide informal mentoring and befriending, whether that be at the food bank or sitting beside a homeless person on the street. The people who we meet have complex needs such as extreme poverty, mental health issues, addictions, unemployment, experiences of domestic abuse, and may be ex-prisoners or homeless.
Storehouse offers a safe place to come and meet with the team and other service users, in warmth and security. We provide emotional one to one support, referrals to external agencies where appropriate and guidance on benefits and budgeting. We aim to give practical help in the short term but support in the long term.
