Please be aware that the if you are unknown to the Foodbank you cannot receive a parcel without a voucher. Nor can you ring up and ask for a food parcel. To receive a voucher you need to go to a local agency such as CAB, DIAL, MESH,COMEUNITY, or your doctor’s surgery, church or your own social worker etc. We don’t want to turn people away at Christmas but our job is to meet the needs of those on our books .Remember the Marina centre is open Christmas Day for a free festive meal you do not need to book you can just turn up. I understand DIAL will be the best port of call after Christmas if you are struggling. The next Foodbank open is on Tuesday Boxing Day at St Mary Magdalene Church 10 – 1.00pm. The Salvation Army is back on Thursday 28th December . 10 – 12 noon.
