SHROPSHIRE FOOD BANKS

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I GO TO A FOOD BANK?

Food banks are welcoming spaces. A volunteer will sit with you and check your voucher and any dietary needs you may have. You might be offered a cup of tea whilst another volunteer makes up a food parcel for you. Volunteers are fully trained and non-judgmental. They are there to offer a listening ear, support and advice. This video with Shrewsbury Food Bank will give you a good insight into how food banks work.  

HOW CAN I GET AN EMERGENCY FOOD PARCEL?

To use a food bank you will need a referral. There are many people who can issue food bank vouchers including health professionals, advice workers, housing associations and Shropshire Council. If you are not sure who to ask, please phone your local food bank and they will be able to help you.

 

Many Shropshire towns have a food bank. They are run by volunteers and give out food which has been donated by the community. Check the opening hours, as they tend to open for just a few hours per week.
