If you need help from our foodbank there are a few simple steps to follow.
The first and most important step is to get a foodbank voucher code.
In order to provide the most appropriate help for the circumstances of your situation we work with local agencies. There are over 150 organisations across Salford who are able to issue Foodbank vouchers. Far too many to list here. They range from schools and medical practices to probation services and Manchester Fire and Rescue.
If you are already in contact with Health Visitors, or other support workers, they will advise you. If you live in Social (Council) Housing, then your Housing Officer will help. They will discuss your situation and if they feel you are struggling to put food on the table, they may issue you with a foodbank voucher code.
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: Salford Citizens Advice, housing support officers, children’s centres, health visitors, social services and some local charities.
If you are unsure about who to contact, email our foodbank and we can talk through your situation and put you in touch with a relevant local agency, or contact Salford Citizens Advice crisis lines on 07957 162327, or 07494 498678.
Once you’ve got your Voucher Code you can exchange that for a food parcel at any of our Distribution Centres. (See our Locations page)
