How can you help?

The Jigsaw food Bank initiative provides emergency tinned and packet food to individuals and families in the local community who are unable to provide for themselves due to loss of income, employment or benefits and find themselves in a crisis situation.

By donating to the Jigsaw Food Bank you can help support people in crisis in a simple, practical way.

Thank you!

Together we can help feed people in the local community.
