Food Bank Opening Times – December 2022

Food Bank Opening Times – December 2022

Information about accessing emergency food help over the festive period
When applying for emergency help to access most food banks it is necessary to apply for a voucher before contacting the food bank. The only way to access vouchers is through various professionals such as doctors, social workers, mental health workers, Citizens Advice Centers and Job Centre Plus offices. Unfortunately, Job Centre Plus offices are closed from Friday 23rd until Thursday 29th when they will be open as normal. The Job Centre plus offices will also be closed on Monday 2nd January 2023. Job Centre plus phone lines will be open on Wednesday 28th for missing payments and emergency payments only. In some cases, collection of food parcels will require an appropriate form of ID.
