Food Banks

There is a network of local food banks that are administered by the Trussell Trust, a UK registered charity . Visit their Food Bank Finder tool to find your local food bank.

You should note that in order to collect food you will need to have been referred to the food bank and have been issued with a food bank voucher. Referring agencies include Citizens Advice Bureau, social workers, housing associations and local health practitioners.

There is also a network of independent food banks across the UK. Find out more on these and their individual qualifying criteria by visiting the FoodAidNetwork website.
