Shropshire has over 20 food banks, providing emergency food and support to anyone in the community who is in need.You can find your local food bank here.
If you have never used a food bank before, watch the video below from Karen who runs Shrewsbury’s Barnabas Food Bank. She talks through how the food bank works and how they treat everyone with dignity and respect .
Most food banks need you to be referred from another organisation – this could be your GP, school, housing association, Citizens Advice or any other agency you may be in touch with. If you’re not sure, please ask your food bank for advice.
Please contact your food bank if you are struggling to afford food – no matter your situation. They are here to support you all year round.
