If you need help from our foodbank there are a few simple steps to follow.
1. The most important step is to get a foodbank voucher. PLEASE DO NOT COME TO OUR DISTRIBUTION POINTS WITHOUT A VOUCHER HAVING BEEN SORTED FOR YOU.
Many of our normal agencies have ceased face to face contact so please call the CWAC Help scheme on 0300 123 7065 – they may be able to assist with a Foodbank Voucher.
In order to provide the most appropriate help for the circumstances of your situation we work with local agencies. If they feel you are struggling to put food on the table, they will issue you with a foodbank voucher. The local agency can also provide long term support if needed to help address some of the issues behind the reasons for your crisis. Agencies we work with include: Citizens Advice, housing support officers, children’s centres, health visitors, social services and some local charities. (NB Update 20 March – please note many agencies have ceased face to face meetings.
2. Bring your foodbank voucher to your nearest foodbank centre.
You can find a list of our local centres and opening times here.
If you have any further questions our FAQ’s page may help, or feel free to give us a call.
