Visiting a food bank is often the last resort. So we try to make it as easy as possible and check that you have all you need.
The Welcome Centre provides packs of food, toiletries, bedding, household items, pet food and small electricals.
It’s important to us that our packs suit the needs of the individual or families receiving them.
Our food packs are nutritious and contain a variety of foods. These include tinned and packet foods alongside fresh fruit and vegetables, bread, meat or vegetarian options.
When you get referred, tell us what your needs are, so we can make your pack just right for you. For example we can offer packs that are
- Dairy or wheat free
- Allergy based
- Without foods you don’t like or struggle to eat
You'll have enough food for 7 days which will make a variety of filling meals.
