More information about getting help

Do I need a referral to receive a food parcel?

A foodbank voucher is NOT necessary the first time you contact us for a food parcel.  After the first contact, a foodbank voucher is required, which will enable three further collections. 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 to collect 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 have optional products (toiletries, sanitary products, pet foods etc...) which you can add to your bags when you collect.

How and when will I receive the food parcel?

Collections are each Saturday morning between 10am and 12 noon.   Once you have contacted us, we will give you an appointment date and time for your first, and any subsequent collections.

Collections are from our Warehouse: - Unit 6, Buckingham Court, Brackley NN13 6ED

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?
