Supply of emergency food parcels for those in food poverty in the local community. To access the foodbank a voucher must be obtained from a local agency such as Citizens Advice Bureau, Family centres, Housing association support workers, etc.
The agency will be able to support the client with advice and signposting as well as assess the ongoing need of the client.
The foodbank relies on the generous donations of mainly tinned foods by the local community and is open to receive donations as well as giving out food parcels.
The Trussell Trust foodbank network works in partnership with local churches and organisations to bring foodbanks to communities across the UK. There are now over 400 foodbanks in the network
