How does it work?

Portsmouth (North) Foodbank is a part of the main Portsmouth Foodbank operated by King’s Church, Southsea, and serves the north of the city.

It is part of the Trussell Trust national network of Foodbanks.

The Foodbanks are non-judgemental and inclusive, providing assistance to people of all backgrounds and all faiths or none who are found to be in genuine need. All the food that is distributed by the Foodbank has been donated by people within the community and by various local churches and sorted by volunteers.

Who can receive food parcel?

Anyone in a crisis!

For example: • Unemployment • Benefit Changes & Delays

• Refused Crisis Loan •

Delayed Wages • Debt • Homelessness • Low Income • Sickness

Who issues Food Vouchers?

Frontline care professionals such as doctors, council & social workers, Sure Start Children’s Centres & church pastoral workers identify people in a crisis and issue a food voucher. Clients receive three days of nutritionally balanced, non-perishable food in exchange for their food voucher.
