How to get help

If you need help from our foodbank there are a few simple steps to follow.

Step 1 – Obtain a Food Bank Voucher
The most important step is to get a foodbank voucher.

Below is a list of local agencies we work with within the Lichfield Community.

If they feel you are struggling to put food on the table, they can issue you with a food bank voucher code.

These local agencies can also provide longer term support and access to information about resources that can help to address some of the issues behind the reasons for your crisis.

When you contact a referral agency they will take some basic details from you to complete the voucher code. This will help them to identify the cause of your crisis and offer practical guidance. 

Once you have been issued with a voucher, you can exchange this for a parcel of food from your nearest distribution centre

Step 2 – Visit one of Lichfield’s foodbanks

Don’t forget to bring your voucher as our Volunteers can only give food and household items to people who have a voucher code.  This ensures everyone we meet has the opportunity to get the wider support they need.

You can find a list of our local centres and opening times here.

Step 3 – Receiving your food parcel

Volunteers will give a minimum of three days’ emergency food and offer support to resolve some of the difficulties you might be facing.

If you are currently unable to get to our centres, and do not have anybody who can collect food on your behalf, please contact us to discuss how we can help you.

Step 4 – Get in touch with us

If you are are unable to contact any of the above agencies then please contact us on 07833 741958 or email us on [email protected] and one of our Volunteers will be happy to help you.

Alternatively, if you have any further questions our FAQ’s page may help, or feel free to contact us

Our volunteers will welcome and support everyone who is referred to them, always acting with respect and without judgement.
