What is a Foodbank?

It is a centre that provides emergency food to help people in times of Crisis. Foodbanks also make time to chat and to signpost clients to other helpful services.


Who can access a Foodbank?

Food vouchers are issued  by agencies such as Lincolnshire Community Assistance Scheme (LCAS) and Citizen’s Advice Bureau, and front line professionals such as doctors who identify people in crisis.

Why do people need emergency food?

Today people across the UK struggle to feed themselves and their families. Redundancy, illness, benefit delay, domestic violence, debt, family breakdown and paying for the additional costs of heating during winter are just some of the reasons why people go hungry. 

What is in a foodbox?

Each foodbox contains a minimum of three days nutritionally balanced, non-perishable food.


Where does the food come from?

Food is donated by schools, churches, businesses and individuals. The food donated is non-perishable, in-date food. Large collections often take place as part of Harvest Festival celebrations. Food is also collected at ‘Supermarket Collections’: These are events held at supermarkets where volunteers give shoppers a ‘foodbank shopping list’ and ask them to buy an extra item or two for local people in crisis.

Any of the Distribution Centres will take in donations of non-perishable food from groups or individuals during their opening  times.

All food that is donated is sorted by a team of volunteers at the Foodbank warehouse. They check that it’s in date and pack it into boxes ready to deliver to one of the Distribution Centres.
