Helping local people in crisis

Foodbanks are designed to help people in crisis through providing emergency food supplies. They help to fill the gap between a crisis and long term help.

In order to provide the most appropriate help for the circumstances of your situation they work with local agencies. If the agencies feel you are struggling to put food on the table, they will issue you with a foodbank voucher. The local agency can also provide long term support if needed to help address some of the issues behind the reasons for your crisis. 

The foodbank works with a number of different agencies, such as Citizens Advice, children’s centres and health visitors. To find out more about the agencies that hold our vouchers and how you can get help, please contact your local foodbank.

When you visit a referral agency they will take some basic details from you to complete the voucher. This will help them to identify the cause of your crisis and offer practical guidance. It also means they are able to prepare suitable emergency food for the right number of people.

Once you have been issued with a voucher, you can exchange this for a minimum of three days of emergency food at your nearest foodbank centre

To see the opening times and locations of the Adur foodbank centres have a look at the website. The foodbank Worthing has it's own website

Everyone who goes to the foodbank for emergency food needs to have a valid foodbank voucher.
