What we can provide

We have standard food parcels containing nutritious food that has all been donated locally.  We have parcels for individuals and families.  Each parcel contains three days of food to provide three meals per day for each member of the household, along with toiletries. We will try to accommodate any special dietary requirements you may have but this may not always be possible.  And if you have pets then we will try to feed them too!

Wells Vineyard Foodbank provides emergency food parcels to local people who have a referral voucher.
