Food Banks are found in many areas – and we help and support their work. You too can help support your local food bank for just £1 a week – it can make such a difference.
There can be many reasons for people finding themselves in financial difficulty such as sanction of benefits, relationship breakdowns, debt, accommodation issues, illness and family problems. Food donations are made into parcels to suit single people, couples or families and contain enough nutritious food to last around a week. Referrals are made – usually by professional organisations who are aware of the predicament of the person or family.
Food Banks rely mostly on donations of food and are run by volunteers. However, there are volunteer costs (covering their travel costs / car fuel), premises (including utilities – electricity, telephone) and certain food items need to purchased when they are not available.
