The Advocacy team leader and Drop-in Manager are also responsible for giving out Marah emergency food packs. The packs are supplied to Marah by Stroud District Foodbank. Marah's packs provide basic food for 3 days for a single person. A total of 579 packs were given out in the past year. Many of those in receipt of food packs last year had had their benefit stopped or sanctioned. The issuing of food packs is monitored, with client name and reason for issue recorded.
