Referral Agencies

Quite often people in a food crisis are already being helped by a statutory or voluntary service.  We recommend that anyone needing food should visit one of these agencies before coming the foodbank.  The agency or service  can provide support or advice for the underlying crisis. They will assess the need and can provide  a voucher giving the basic information needed by the food bank, such as name, address, the family size and the nature of the  emergency. We will then be able to prepare a parcel with most appropriate items.

Here are agencies in the Whitby area:
