Some foodbanks will give food to anyone who needs it, during their opening hours – you just have to ask.

Others need an agency to refer you (e.g. a key worker, GP or Citizens Advice Bureau).

During the Covid pandemic, some foodbanks do things differently to normal, for example they might offer delivery or ask you to come at a certain time.

Foodbanks are all a bit different, and are often run by volunteers – people who know what it’s like!

Some of the organisations on the map are not foodbanks at all, but another sort of organisation that might be good to know about. Check out what’s in your area.
