Food banks are not-for-profit organisations that give food to people who are struggling to afford enough to eat. Food with a long shelf life (tinned food, powered milk, pasta etc), is collected through donations, then sorted and stored.

The food is given to people who have recieved a voucher, usually from a support worker, housing officer or Probation Officer. This voucher can be taken to a local foodbank and exchanged for an emergency food parcel.

Alternatively, you can click here to view the Trussell Trust website.

You can also contact the free Shelter Helpline on 0808 800 4444.
