jigsaw foodbank

We offer support to people in the local area who for a variety of reasons find that they are struggling to feed themselves and their families

We can provide emergency support in the form of a crisis parcel or ongoing weekly food parcels for an agreed period of time. Receiving a food parcel can help take the pressure off finances and enable individuals, couples or families to deal with other issues they might have to contend with

Crisis Parcel
If you are in need of a one off emergency food parcel to be collected from The Lime Tree then please email [email protected] or phone 01629 584 783

Ongoing Referrals
Ongoing referrals can only be accepted from supporting agencies. If you are from a supporting agency then please download and return the referral form Foodbank Referral Form

If you don’t have a support agency working with you, please email [email protected] or contact the Citizens Advice Bureau on 0300 456 8390
