FoodBank vouchers

Our FoodBank works using a voucher referral system.

We know that anyone can find themselves at crisis point for a number of different reasons.

In order to provide the most appropriate help for the circumstances of your situation we work with local agencies. If they feel you are struggling to put food on the table, they will issue you with a foodbank voucher. The local agency can also provide long term support if needed to help address some of the issues behind the reasons for your crisis. 

Our foodbank works with a number of different agencies, such as Citizens Advice, children’s centres and health visitors. When you visit a referral agency they will take some basic details from you to complete the voucher. This will help them to identify the cause of your crisis and offer practical guidance. It also means we are able to prepare suitable emergency food for the right number of people.

Once you have been issued with a voucher, you can exchange this for emergency food parcel  at your nearest distribution centre

If you are a referral agency and would like to become a registered voucher holder for our foodbank, please contact us to find out more. Trish Slade 07901898438

Great Yarmouth Foodbank Client Testimonials

’I was desperate for help and the food parcel made a massive difference’

‘I had lost my job and I have 5 children to feed and no money till the benefits get sorted – this was a real helping hand.’

My name is Michael G from Hemsby and I’ve had the good fortune to come into contact with L from the Gt Yarmouth Foodbank. I was down and out at the time, waiting for documents to work from the Home Office , but today I’m strong/  working and happy thanks to he FoodBank going out of their way to bring boxes of food all the way out to our doorstep in Hemsby. They made us feel comfortable and as a result we are now moving up. Thanks
