If you think you’ll run out of food by the end of the week, it’s important to plan ahead. Most food banks aren’t open at the weekend, so try to get a referral before the weekend.
Before visiting a community referral organisations, or a Citizens Advice branch – make sure you check they’re open first, before travelling there.
If you’ve got your voucher but you’re not able to travel, your nearest food bank might be able to deliver. Contact them to find out.
Some foodbanks put a limit on the number of times you can use them. If you find yourself relying on them too often, they’ll be able to help you find other support.
