We will remain open to help the community along as we can during the coronavirus emergency. However, we ask clients to wait outside the door, rather than entering the building. You don’ need any referral for your first food parcels – just come or call ahead so we can prepare a parcel for you to pick up. If you can’t get to the foodbank, we can deliver if necessary.
We are open every Monday and Friday afternoon between 2.00pm and 4.00pm, except Bank Holidays. Outside these times phone Chris 07789 765696, or Barry 07810 205014
Find us at the back of Whitby Evangelical Church at the end of Poplar Row.
We are here to help when anyone finds that they have no money to buy food to feed themselves or their family. Such situations arise for all sorts of reasons – illness, redundancy, unexpected bills and delays in payment are just a few examples.
We can supply food parcels to cover a meals for a minimum of three days and parcels can include things like shower gel and toilet rolls as well.
How it works:
If you are unable to afford food, please try to visit one of our referral agencies. They can give you a voucher for the foodbank and can provide advice and support for your circumstances. Bring this voucher with you to the foodbank during the opening hours.
Here you’ll be welcomed and offered a cuppa whilst your food is packed up.
If you can’t get to a referral agency before coming to the foodbank we will still be able to give you a limited amount of food.
