How the Food Bank works

The project is entirely funded by local people and churches.

Volunteers sort and pack the food into food bags. Each food bag contains enough food for 3 days for a family of up to four.

We work in partnership with agencies like CAB, Family Centres and the Village Action Shop and also receive referrals from Social Services, Health Visitors and doctors, who identify people in crisis and refer them to the Food Bank.

Those in need of help are referred to one of our distribution points to receive a bag.
