The food bank is normally open on Monday and Friday afternoons 2pm – 4pm. The primary route to access the food bank is through one of our referral partners.
foodbank4whitby operates primarily through referrals by its partner agencies like CAB, the Children’s Centre and Yorkshire Coast Homes. They are listed on the Partner page. In an emergency, we do accept self-referrals for a limited supply of food prior to attending a Referrer. The food bank is open to callers on Monday and Friday afternoons 2pm – 4pm. The food bank is accessed via the rear of Whitby Evangelical Church (entrance far end of Poplar Street).
