We’ve been supporting our Foodbank Network to develop our More Than Food programme, to help foodbanks develop into community hubs, providing people in need with emergency food and a range of support in one location.
Money management charities partnering with foodbanks to provide tools and courses to help tackle debt and financial difficulties.
Eat Well Spend Less
Our basic cookery, nutrition and budget management course helping people to eat healthily when on a low budget.
Helping children and families at times when free school meals are not available by offering food and fun activities.
Tackling Fuel Poverty
Working with npower to pilot Fuel Banks, allowing struggling households on prepayment meters to receive a fuel bank voucher.
Many other services
We are working on developing many other services to enable foodbanks to give holistic care and support for members of their community.
Many foodbanks offer toiletries and non-food items, for instance ‘Baby Basics’ provide new mothers with essential items and the ‘Big Wrap’ provides children with Christmas presents. We’re also offering support with welfare, housing, job skills and grants.
