If you need help from our foodbank there are a few simple steps to follow.
The most important step is to get a foodbank voucher.
In order to provide the most appropriate help for the circumstances of your situation we work with local agencies. If they feel you are struggling to put food on the table, they will issue you with a foodbank voucher. The local agency can also provide long term support if needed to help address some of the issues behind the reasons for your crisis. Agencies we work with include: Citizens Advice, housing support officers, children’s centres, health visitors, social services and some local charities.
1. Get in touch with us.
If you call or email our foodbank we can talk through your situation and put you in touch with a relevant local agency.
2. Arrange a visit to the referral agency.
They will discuss your situation and supply you with a foodbank voucher where appropriate.
3. Bring your foodbank voucher to your nearest distribution centre.
You can find a list of our local centres and opening times here.
A foodbank cafe is open each Wednesday from 10:30 to 1:00 at the URC church hall so that you can access Romsey Foodbank and discover other ways you can receive help from other local community services. Alternatively you can arrange to collect your food parcel at one of the other local centres.
If you have any further questions our FAQ’s page may help, or feel free to give us a call.
