More Than Food

We offer help beyond a food parcel. People referred to us can also ask for an appointment with our Citizens Advice Advisor. They are keen to support you with maximising your income, helping to access benefits and grants and supporting you with debt issues.

Our foodbank is running a More Than Food programme. This means that we are providing additional support alongside emergency food, to help people address the underlying issues behind their crisis.

Our foodbank has specifically trained volunteers who can offer you additional help in the following areas:

  • Eat Well Spend Less – our six-week basic cookery, nutrition and budget management course.
  • Holiday Club – supporting families at times when free school meals are not available by offering food and fun activities.
  • Money Life – providing tools and courses to tackle debt and budgeting.
  • Fuel Bank – supports households most in need of help by giving them funds to pay for gas and electricity alongside emergency food aid.

For more information about any of these projects please contact us.
