Emergency food



Most foodbanks require people to be referred to them by a Health or Social Care professional or agency, police or probation services, or a charity such as Citizens Advice, YMCA, or a church.  They will normally do so by issuing a voucher.   Telephone your nearest foodbank if you need help with a referral. If you are unable to contact a referral agency, telephone Bucks Local Emergency Support Team on 01296 382 414 (out of hours:  0800 9997677)

The reason for a referral is that it is important that issues leading to a particular food crisis, such as lack of income or debt, are also addressed.  If you needed an initial referral to use a food bank, you will need another one to go back.  Most food banks have a limit on the number of times you can visit.

Special arrangements are in place during the coronavirus crisis, and many foodbanks are not accepting visitors at the moment, but are making home deliveries.   Telephone for current information about arrangements for accessing supplies.
