All food given out is donated, whether by schools, churches, businesses, individuals, or through supermarket collections.

Such collections engage the public at supermarkets where they are met by volunteers who offer shoppers a ‘foodbank shopping list' and ask them to buy an extra item with their shop. This food is then collected at the checkout before being taken to the foodbank warehouse.

Care professionals such as doctors, health visitors, social workers, Citizens Advice Bureau staff, welfare officers, the police and probation officers, amongst others, identify people in crisis and issue them with a food bank voucher.

Clients bring their voucher to a foodbank centre where it can be exchanged for three days supply of emergency food.
