You are so welcome to our food bank. You will find a hot meal, a listening ear and your food parcel ready for you.
‘You feel like you’re the only one, but when you come in to Foodbank you see there are so many other people going through the same thing.’ Rhiannon
We know it can be difficult to think about coming to food bank, but please be assured that food crisis can happen to anyone and that you are certainly not alone in your situation. That’s why our volunteers aim to welcome everyone who comes to the foodbank with compassion, kindness and a listening ear.
Meeting your needs
Your foodbank voucher will be exchanged for three days of emergency food. We want to make sure that we give you the right food to meet your needs, so please do let our volunteers know if you have any special dietary requirements or allergies, for example, gluten free, halal or vegetarian.
Whilst your food parcel is being prepared, a volunteer will offer you a warm drink and a hot meal. They will also be available if you would like to have a chat. Your food parcel will be packed into supermarket carrier bags. If you prefer to bring your own bags those can be used instead.
Practical guidance and support
Foodbank volunteers take the time to listen and support you. They are specially trained to know about local services and offer practical guidance so that you have access to the right support, helping you to break out of crisis.
