What is a Food Bank?

  • Food banks are community organisations that can help if you can’t afford the food you need.
  • You’ll usually need to get a referral to a food bank before you can use it. This includes all food banks run by the Trussell Trust.
  • You can get a referral for yourself and any family members you live with - including your partner.
  • You might be able to use some food banks without a referral - for example, if it’s run by a church. Contact your local food bank to see if you need a referral.
