What to do if you need help

Our food bank works on a referral system whereby one of our front-line partners will assess your needs.

Your local foodbank, One Can Trust, needs:

Tinned meat meals

Rice

Jams & spreads

Cooking sauces

Tinned vegetables

Toothbrushes

Deodorant

Please be advised we are undergoing IT maintenance today. If you need to contact us, please call 01494 512 277. If you are referring a client for a food parcel, we will email you back within 24 hours to confirm the parcel dates.

Volunteer for your local food bank

If you can spare a few hours weekly or fortnightly, we’d love you to join one of our volunteer teams. Roles vary from packing parcels to sorting through donations, delivering parcels and collecting food from supermarkets.

Please get in touch if you’d like to get involved to help us tackle food poverty and where possible, provide additional support to people in our local community.

Can you help with a cash or food donation?

Right now, vulnerable families and individuals living locally need your support more than ever. Demand is at the highest levels we’ve ever seen and with the continuing cost of living crisis, we fear it’ll rise further.

End to household support fund will put a further strain on those who are struggling to make ends meet and plunge many households into debt. Would you consider writing to your MP and sharing your concerns? @IFAN_UK have prepared a template letter:

We're so grateful to @VINCI UK Foundation for your donation - we were all very excited with the big cheque! The money will be put towards a new van - our current one is simply not big enough for some of the loads we are now carrying.

Thank you💛
