Delivery Only Model – Foodbank Centres closed

16th April 2020

Due to Coronavirus, we have moved to a Delivery Only Model.  This is in line with current guidance to ensure social distancing and keeping people safe by reducing the need to leave our homes.

If you can’t afford food, you can call 0808 2082138 (freephone) to speak to a trained and independent Citizens Advice agent (Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm).  Please note this number is for people who do not have enough money for food – if you are a local organisation or charity that works with people who might need the food bank, please contact us directly. 

Alternatively, please call 0207 745 6464 to speak to the Local Support Payments Team (https://www.lbhf.gov.uk/benefits/help-paying) who may be able to issue you with a food bank voucher after a short assessment.
