To access help from Bath Foodbank you will need to be referred, this can be done by a number of agencies like B&NES Council, Citizens Advice, some schools, some GP’s services, social workers etc. If you have already received a parcel and need another, please return to the agency who first arranged the food.
If you are a new client and need food and are unsure who to contact please call B&NES Council Welfare Support on 01225 477 277 (Mon-Fri 9-4pm), or call the Help Through Hardship National Freephone Number 08080 208 2138 (Mon-Fri 9-5pm); to talk confidentially with a trained Citizens Advice adviser. They can help address your crises and provide support to maximise your income, help you navigate the benefits system, and identify any additional grants you could be entitled to. If needed, they’ll issue you with a voucher so you can get an emergency food parcel from your local food bank.
We are now operating an e-voucher system. The agency you speak with will issue you with a code which you will be asked for at the foodbank centre. If you need help accessing an e- voucher, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
