Corona Virus (COVID-19) important news

To sustain the Foodbank work throughout the Coronavirus outbreak, please contact your support agencies first before coming to us. Please try not to phone the Foodbank, please contact us by e-mail.

Vouchers are available from Citizens Advice, North Somerset Council teams, many health services and GPs, schools and other support agencies.

Local outposts are now available to collect food from throughout the week. Please use your local outpost as much as possible to free our food bank teams:

Foodbank central base will remain opened on Mondays and Fridays as normal but please try to divert people to their local outposts. We have to close our Wednesday operations due to staff shortage.

SELF ISOLATION: if you are self isolating or sick please let the agency know at the time of requesting a voucher, there is a delivery system in place ( for genuine need, not convenience)

At the moment each outpost only has a few parcels but by taking some of the referrals from our Town Centre base, it will free our volunteers to focus on replenishing the centres. Please go to your local point

Some schools will have parcels for their own families and the family support worker will advice if this is the case.

If you are in self-isolation and need the Foodbank please tell the issuing agency and they will sort it out (do not call the Foodbank directly to arrange delivery).

We are currently unable to accept any more volunteers due to the limited space in our centre. We also currently have enough drivers. Please check with us after the Corona virus has ended when offers of help will be much appreciated.
