Bath Foodbank gives three days of emergency food to individuals and families in crisis. Care professionals in the Bath area refer people to the Foodbank using a food voucher. At the foodbank centre clients exchange their voucher for food supplies. They also receive a cup of coffee, a listening ear and signposting to other professionals who can help them out of their crisis.
Bath Foodbank also supports existing agencies working with distressed and destitute people by donating food in bulk.
Bath Foodbank allows the general public to contribute to, and support, local well-being in a simple practical way.
