More information about getting help

Do I need a referral to receive a food parcel?

A foodbank voucher isn't required the first time you contact us for a food parcel. After the first delivery a foodbank voucher is required, which will enable a further three deliveries. This voucher should be filled in by a sponsor such as a GP, school or social worker. This is something we can help you with and you can decide whether you need deliveries made weekly, fortnightly or monthly.

Will a food parcel cater for my whole family?

We provide one food parcel per person, so you can let us know how many people are in your house when you get in touch with us. We have separate adult (age 13+) and children’s food parcels.

What's in a typical food parcel?

Please see the two photos below for a typical adult and child food parcel. Parcels contain non-perishable, tinned and dried foods that have been donated by the local community. We aim to add in extras where possible and, on occasion, fun recipes for children's food.

How and when would I receive the food parcel?

All food parcels are delivered to your door by one of our volunteers. You do not need to visit us. Deliveries are made on Mondays and Thursdays between 10am and 12pm. Please arrange for someone to be in at this time to receive the food parcel(s). Once you have made contact with us, we will deliver your parcel(s) on the following Monday or Thursday.

Do you support children on free school meals?

In school holidays we can deliver children’s food parcels to any who receive free school meals. Your child’s school can fill out a voucher for the whole family and send it to us.

I have a dietary requirement, are you still able to provide a parcel for me?

When requesting your parcel, please make us aware of any dietary requirements. We always do our best to respond to specific requests .

How do you keep my details confidential?
