Do you need help from the food bank
In order to get help from your local food bank you will need to be referred by a frontline professional, this can be your doctor, a health visitor, a social worker or the Citizens Advice, who will make a referral on your behalf by issuing you with a food bank voucher. The referral system ensures you are provided with appropriate help and support for your situation.
You can exchange the voucher at your nearest food bank for a minimum of three days’ emergency food.
