Our amazing local foodbank continues to support families within our local community. Details of how to access this service can be found herehttps://eastbristol.foodbank.org.uk/get-help/how-to-get-help/

 

 

Our Family Support Worker Louise would normally distribute vouchers to families in need but during the summer you can contact:

Bristol City Council hold vouchers for our Foodbank and can verify your circumstances and email us. If needed, they’ll issue you with a voucher so you can get an emergency food parcel from your local foodbank, a voucher the same day even if you have already had an emergency payment within the last 12 months. You can call them on 0117 922 4500 Monday to Friday 9am to 12 Noon

S Glos Welfare Grant can be called on 01454 868899 from 8.45am to 2pm and can directly refer to us for deliveries of food parcels to your home after they verify your situation.
