Food Bank Locations

There are many Food Banks in Dorset which are mostly run by volunteers and help many families in a time of need.  The Food Banks rely on donations to feed local people in crisis so please give if you can.

Food Banks will be grateful for most foods which has a 'use by' date of six months or over.  An example of foods are tinned food, cereals, sugar, pasta, pasta sauces, biscuits, tea/coffee, UHT milk or snacks.  Please consider a family in need when you are in the supermarket and see a 'Buy One get One Free' or 'Half Price' offer.

Food Banks may vary but generally vouchers are required to receive a food parcel and these are held by a wide range of professionals in the community so that those in need can be helped quickly.  Please contact a Food Bank near you for further information.
