We operate a self-referral food bank, which means that you do not have to get a referral from a professional in order to get a food parcel. This ensures that we can provide support to people who may not be accessing other services, or who do not have the ability to request a referral.
Normal service details...
The Broomhouse Food Bank offers free packs of food to families and individuals in crisis. Supported by your donations of non-perishable food, we are able to make a difference to families living in poverty in our area.
If you are in crisis and need help with emergency food provision, please contact us immediately.
Many of our clients are facing long term crisis situations. The most common reason for service access this year was clients having no money to buy food, often due to benefit delays, sanctions or changes.
We pride ourselves on the holistic nature of the project, and encourage Foodbank clients to engage with our primary services.
