– Fylde Foodbank

Today in Fylde there are families struggling to put food on the table.

This may be due to low incomes, an unexpected bill, or a sudden crisis such as redundancy or benefit delay.

Fylde Foodbank provides emergency food and support to local people in crisis.

Fylde Foodbank is part of the The Trussell Trust’s UK-wide foodbank network.

How does a foodbank work?

Step 1 : Non-perishable food is donated by the public

Step 2 : Volunteers sort and pack food into emergency food boxes

Step 3 : Frontline care workers give foodbank vouchers to people in crisis

Step 4 : Foodbank vouchers are exchanged for 3 days of food at a foodbank

Step 5 : Foodbanks take time to listen and signpost clients to further support channels
