We work with local professional organisations such as DWP and Children’s Centres to identify people in need and issue them with a voucher.
Once referred, clients can bring the voucher to the centre where it can be exchanged for a parcel containing basic non- perishable items which will last a minimum of 3 days.
Dawdon Youth and Community Centre introduced the Food Bank to provide short-term emergency support with food during a crisis. Our aim is to provide immediate emergency support with food during a crisis. We hope to relieve the immediate pressure of the crisis by providing food, whilst also offering solutions to help identify and resolve the underlying causes of crisis.
We rely totally on donations from local businesses, residents and employees to keep the foodbank stocked. If you would like to donate non-perishable items please drop them into the centre. Thank You.
