What’s the criteria to receive a food parcel?

Some independent food banks won’t need anything for you to get food and goods from them - you can just turn up and get what you need.

However, others may require a foodbank voucher or a referral. To get this, you can contact the citizens’ advice bureau on 0808 223 1133.

Furthermore, several foodbanks will also ask you for proof of residency in the UK. To avoid disappointment, it’s a good idea to contact your local food bank before visiting them and ask them what they will require of you.

How can I support my local food bank?

If you’d like to make a donation to your local food bank, there are several ways of doing it - and they’re all very easy.

Firstly, you can visit them directly and drop off some food that way. As well as this, most supermarkets have a collection near the exit where you can leave unwanted food items - these will be taken to a local food bank.

You can also make a donation at schools or churches if they have a collection point or fund.
