Accessing Food 

 If you have a voucher, Emergency parcels can be collected from one of our four Foodbank outlets in Henbury, Hotwells, Lawrence Weston or Avonmouth.  

If you can’t afford food, you speak to your support worker or you can call 0808 2082138 for free (open Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm). You’ll confidentially talk to a trained Citizens Advice agent and, if needed, they’ll issue you with a food bank voucher.

Ring 0117 9235343 or text 07821 466497 if you need more information.

Our Advice Worker is still available to clients. See here
