We offer help beyond a food parcel. Find out more about additional services and support.
Our foodbank is running a More Than Food programme. This means that we are providing additional support alongside emergency food, to help people address the underlying issues behind their crisis.
Our foodbank has specifically trained volunteers who can offer you additional help in the following areas:
- Eat Well Spend Less – our basic cookery, nutrition and budget management course.
We are currently trialing an outreach project: Eat Well Spend Less with a few select individuals who are currently homeless. Our aims are to create a family environment where you are shown how to cook on a budget with non-perishable foods and make people aware of food costs. As this is currently being trialled it is currently not available to the public, but in the next few months we will post the results of how successful it has been and consider rolling it out to the public.
- Fuel Bank – supports households most in need of help by giving them funds to pay for gas and electricity alongside emergency food aid.
For more information about any of these projects please contact us.
