If you need help from our foodbank there are a few simple steps to follow.
The most important step is to get a foodbank voucher.
In order to provide the most appropriate help for the circumstances of your situation we work with local agencies. If you are struggling to put food on the table, they will issue you with a foodbank referral/evoucher. The local agency can also provide long term support if needed to help address some of the issues behind the reasons for your crisis. Agencies we work with include: AdviceNI, MLAs, housing support officers, health visitors, social services and local charities.
1. Get in touch with us.
If you call or email our foodbank we can talk through your situation and put you in touch with a relevant local agency.
2. Contact the referral agency.
They will discuss your situation and supply you with a foodbank voucher where appropriate.
3. A member of the South Belfast Foodbank team will contact you to arrange an appointment
