Food Bank

UPDATED FOOD BANK INFORMATION DUE TO CORONA VIRUS - March 2020

Loveworks runs referral only food banks in Merstham and Reigate providing emergency food parcels for people and families in crisis.

How do you access a food bank?

  • Through frontline professionals and a voucher referral system we can offer you and your family short term emergency crisis support. How do I find a voucher?
  • When you have been referred you will be offered a time and venue to pick up a food parcel.

The Food Bank

  • You will be handed a pre-packed parcel of food and other essential items, based on the size of your family, dietary and other urgent needs as identified by your referring agency
  • Unfortunately we cannot currently offer our normal service so there will be no choice of what is in the parcel, utility top-ups, hot drinks or discussions with our volunteers.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • No food will be given without referral or booked time slot.

  • Our volunteers are working in very difficult circumstances and we will not tolerate any abuse, either physical or verbal of them or other Food Bank users.  Please respect that we are all trying hard to help those most in need at this very difficult time.

 

Hopefully we will back to normal soon!

Hear from volunteer Graham: the food bank is friendly, warm and welcoming
