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
