Our top queries

If you need support with food

Please visit our Get Help page for information on how to get a voucher for your local food bank.

If you need support with energy bills

Food banks in our network do not usually provide support with gas and electricity, but you can find information about who to contact and what to do if you’re struggling with energy bills.

Becoming a referral agency

Food banks in our network look after their own referral agency partnerships, so there are a couple of steps we would recommend:

  1. Get in touch with the food bank nearest to you and ask about becoming a partnered agency. You can do this by using our Find a Food bank Map
  2. Have a chat with the food bank about the setup process, which might include filling out a registration form and being set up on the Data Collection System. The local project will be able to answer any questions you might have about partnering, the set-up process and holding food vouchers.

Please note that given the current crisis food banks in our network are experiencing much higher demand and therefore might take a little longer to reply. Please leave a message with your details so they can get back to you as soon as they can. Many food banks have also adapted their current operations to reflect the government guidance on Covid-19 & therefore might not be taking on any more agencies, but the local food bank can confirm this.

Food banks in our network could not provide the crucial support they do without support from people like you. Here are a few ways you can help:

Volunteer your time

Find out about volunteering opportunities and sign up.

Donate to your local food bank

Food banks rely on your donations – find out which items your local food bank needs.

Due to an increased volume of calls and emails, not every food bank will be able to respond to enquiries, but you can check the items in a standard food parcel.

It’s also worth checking the food bank’s website and social media channels, to find which items they currently need. You can drop off donations at a donation point in your community (often in local supermarkets) or you can organise drop offs directly with the food bank. They’ll also be able to let you know if they prefer a financial donation at this time, to help them with running costs.

Support our Emergency Appeal

Right now an emergency food bank parcel is being given out every 13 seconds. By giving a gift to our Emergency Fund Appeal, you’ll be helping food banks keep going this winter and provide vital support to families that are at crisis point.
