IT'S OKAY TO ASK FOR HELP

It's OKAY to Ask for Help

Caistor food bank sessions run on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 11.30am to 1.30pm from the Caistor Methodist Hall on Chapel Street in Caistor.

We offer a range of produce and emergency staple products including tinned, ambient and fresh foods, and we have a full Covid restriction framework which is followed by all our volunteers.

 

We are here to help local people in crisis get back on their feet - people who may be referred by specialist agencies such as social services, GP surgeries, schools and care centres, or simply people who have found themselves struggling particularly at this time. 

We realise deciding to approach a food bank can be daunting, however everyone is dealt with respect and confidentiality. Sadly due to necessity, food bank recipients should be prepared to bring proof of furlough, benefits, or eligibility for support etc. However, this can be talked through on a first visit to ensure there are no misunderstandings.

We are delighted to have been so positively received by local residents.

Each week we gratefully receive donated produce and goods from local businesses and members of the public.

You can donate to the food bank during out opening times, or contact us to arrange for a pick up.

We welcome volunteers for a wide range of roles at the Food Bank including...

  • Bag Packing

  • Home Deliveries

  • Stock Control

  • Administration

  • Donations

  • Publicity

Every volunteer is valued and appreciated, because we know that without volunteers we couldn't function.​

Sadly, the need for food banks is increasing.

 

Last year, Caistor Food Bank gave out food to almost 3,000 local people, a third of whom were children.

 

As the disruption around the World continues to unfold many people including local families face difficulties in getting enough food to eat.
