Need Emergency Food?

If you need emergency food

Our Foodbank is open and we continue to provide food parcels to those who need them.

We can provide you with up to three emergency food parcels, each containing enough food for three days.

To receive these food parcels, you will need a Foodbank voucher to bring with you to the Foodbank.

How to RECEIVE a food parcel

To receive a food parcel, you will first need to contact one of our partner agencies, who will then refer you to the Foodbank. There are a large number of agencies who you can contact, including:

Help through Hardship: 0808 208 2138 to speak to a Citizens Advice Adviser.
Open Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm. Closed on public holidays.

Open Tuesday to Thursday 10am-4.30pm.

Do also ask your housing provider, GP or health worker.
