How to get help

Need help from one of our foodbanks? Please follow these three steps

1 THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP IS TO GET A FOODBANK VOUCHER

A foodbank voucher can be issued to you by several local agencies (such as Citizens Advice, housing associations, social services, children’s centres, health visitors and some charities).

You’ll need to contact a local agency first. They’ll discuss your situation and supply you with a foodbank voucher where appropriate. They’ll also aim to get you back on track and address some of the issues behind your food crisis.

2. BRING YOUR FOODBANK VOUCHER TO YOUR NEAREST FOODBANK CENTRE

Each foodbank provides a safe, non-judgemental environment. Our trained volunteers will chat with you about your situation. We’ll discuss your dietary needs and exchange your foodbank voucher for a parcel containing three days’ nutritionally balanced food and often other essential items.

3. GET ONGOING SUPPORT

To help get you back on track and address the issues behind your food crisis, it’s important that you discuss your situation with your referral agency.
