Helping local people in crisis
Since we opened in 2014
We have helped feed 7,933 families
Across the EH6 & EH7 Postcode areas.
We know that anyone can reach crisis point and we’re here to help when that happens.
We want to make sure that no one in our local community has to go hungry, but we need your help to make this happen.
who we are
How our Foodbank Works
We know that anyone can find themselves at crisis point for a number of different reasons.
In order to provide the most appropriate help for the circumstances of your situation, we work with local agencies. If they feel you are struggling to put food on the table, they will issue you with a foodbank voucher. The local agency can also provide long term support if needed to help address some of the issues behind the reasons for your crisis.
Our foodbank works using a voucher system.
When you visit a referral agency they will take some basic details from you to complete the voucher. This will help them to identify the cause of your crisis and offer practical guidance. It also means we are able to prepare suitable emergency food for the right number of people.

Our Foodbank in numbers
We know it isn’t right that anyone should be left hungry or living in extreme poverty. But whilst we work for long-term change, our food banks provides emergency food and compassionate, dignified support to people locked in crisis.
Here’s how many people we have helped since we opened in 2014.
