ANYONE CAN REACH CRISIS POINT. WE’RE HERE TO HELP.
Foodbanks provide emergency food during crisis situations such as redundancy, benefit delays or receiving an unexpected bill.
Crisis situations can occur for lots of different reasons and so foodbanks work closely with frontline professionals to identify individuals in need of help by using a voucher referral system.
Emergency food to support people in crisis in the UK
How to get a food voucher
In order to get help from a foodbank you will need to be referred with a voucher, which can be issued by a number of local community organisations.
Visiting a foodbank
Our foodbanks offer a safe environment, where trained volunteers will provide a listening ear whilst your food parcel is prepared.
What’s in a food parcel?
A parcel consists of nutritionally balanced, non-perishable tinned and dried foods, which provide at least three days of healthy, balanced meals for individuals and families.
More than food
Our vision is to help people address the underlying issues behind their crisis. We are working with foodbanks and partner organisations to widen the support available at foodbank centres beyond food, and help people in crisis break the cycle of poverty.
Our More Than Food programme will see foodbanks develop into community hubs, providing people in need with emergency food and a range of support in one location.
