Food support for families
Parents in receipt of Universal Credit, free school meal vouchers and children with Education Health and Care Plans, or facing financial hardship can now call our Together We Can helpline on 0300 123 7052 to request a food parcel.
Parcels are available to collect throughout the day from 9am to 6pm. Alternatively they can be delivered by volunteers to those families who are unable to collect; those calling before 2pm, we aim to deliver the same day, with parcels for those calling after 2pm most likely to be the following day.
The contents of food parcels will be in line with the School Food Standards Guidance and include baking potatoes, baked beans, vegetables, fruit, bread, cheese and other food items. Every effort will be made to cater for special dietary requirements.
If you awnt to help, you can sign up to volunteer or make food bank donations at your local library.
