Foodbank Vouchers

Foodbank voucher

Our foodbank works using a voucher referral system. Find out more about how we work.

We know that anyone can find themselves at crisis point for a number of different reasons.

From Monday 11th January 2021 our foodbank centres will be temporarily closed to visitors for the safety of everyone during the current Coronavirus lockdown. All food parcels will be provided by home delivery only. More information can be found here.

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. 

When you visit a referral agency they will take some basic details from you to complete the voucher. This will help them to identify the cause of your crisis and offer practical guidance. It also means we are able to prepare suitable emergency food for the right number of people.

Due to current social distancing regulations we are now using paperless e-vouchers only.
