What is a foodbank?

Foodbanks are organisations which work with local churches and communities to provide emergency food and support to people in crisis. They are set up and operated on an entirely voluntary basis.

How is a foodbank organised?

A foodbank operates like this:-

Non-perishable food is donated by the public or supermarkets. Volunteers sort, date and store the food on our shelves, ready to put into bags when clients arrive at our centre.

Front line care professionals give foodbank vouchers to people in crisis. Foodbank vouchers are exchanged for at least three days of food. The amount given is based on the number of people in the family in crisis.

Foodbank staff take time to listen and direct clients to where they can access further support.
