How to get help
If you are in need of help, all you need to do is visit our food bank at one of our opening times. There is no need for a voucher or referral, just come along and let one of our volunteers know that it is the first time you are visiting.
Your need to be from one of the following postcodes N11, N80, N87, N13 or N22.
If it is the first time you are visiting we just ask you bring ID (e.g. driving licence or passport) and proof of address (e.g. an official letter not more than 6 months old with your name and address on it) so that we can register you.
