Holsworthy Foodbank and Pop-in Centre

Sponsored by Christians Together

Holsworthy food bank supports the local community by providing 3 days of emergency food supplies to local people in difficult circumstances.  We are here to help Holsworthy District families in a crisis on a short term basis.

If you think you need food from the food bank, you will need to seek advice from one of the following agencies who may then fill in a food bank voucher for you.  Some of these contacts can give you advice about accessing benefits you are entitled to.

  • The Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) (by appointment only)

An appointment with the CAB can be arranged 

  • by phoning Adviceline on 03444 111 444.  If an appointment is recommended then they will arrange one and call back,
  • or by contacting your DWP advisor.

 Alternatively you can apply to any of the following:

  • The Job Centre (for reasons of benefit delay or unemployment)
  • Ministers of religion
  • The Police
  • Medical Centre, families centre and health professionals
  • Schools
  • Housing Officers
  • The Link Centre (Tuesday 11am)
  • The Social Prescribing team

We ask clients who have attended more than once with a voucher to seek an appointment with their DWP advisor and/or CAB as the Foodbank is intended for Short-term not regular use.

Food parcels contain tinned and dried food only.

It is helpful if you can bring strong shopping bags for your food as plastic bags are in short supply.

The food bank is open every Wednesday between 2 pm and 4 pm, in the Manor Suite of Memorial Hall, which is in the Manor car park, Holsworthy.  The Manor Suite is at the back of the hall.  Please come by 3.40pm if possible.
