We can do text only referrals which do not involve us having to print a paper voucher.


The Foodbanks expect additional demand during the coming months. They will continue to provide food for those in financial hardship but, if people have enough money and are self-isolating, they cannot provide food.

Procedures at the centres will be changed to minimise personal contact. This means they will be unable to offer the usual hospitality (tea, coffee etc.). Changes are intended to enable them to provide a service throughout the coming weeks and months. There is no need to come at the beginning of the sessions or to worry about them running out.

Foodbank Closures
