Can I use the Foodbank?

If you live in the SN13 postcode area and surrounding villages, you qualify.

Phone the foodbank mobile number.

Alternatively, clients can visit the foodbank on, (Tuesday mornings between 10 – 11.30 and Saturday mornings between 10 – 12.00 noon) to find out how we can help.

Should you need further help we can signpost you to other areas of support.

A number of local agencies i.e Citizens Advice hold our vouchers and are able to issue them to our clients. If you receive a voucher just pop along to St Aldhelm’s during our opening hours.

In an emergency, food can be issued out of normal opening hours by making contact with a Foodbank volunteer on the organisation’s mobile phone 07788 115095.

How much food will I receive?

We aim to provide short term help by issuing enough food for 3 meals a day for at least 7 days, though in practice our issues will normally last longer than this.

Recycling

We like to work in an environmentally friendly way. We recycle all card and plastic packaging and pass on damaged and out of date food to the local animal sanctuary.

Our local Oxfam shop donates used ‘bags for life’ which we re-use to pack food for distribution.

We also accept non food items like toiletries, pet food and cleaning products which if not required by our clients we will find a home for.

Any surplus food is forwarded on to areas of need in the Southwest.

We do not deliver food for reasons of insurance and health and safety.
