Food Banks in Nottingham

The most up-to-date list of Foodbanks is perhaps the one kept by NCVS at the link below :

Foodbanks typically ask for donations of non-perishable items like:

Rice, Pasta, Tinned Tomatoes/Veg/Fish/Fruit

Baked Beans, Packet Noodles, Chick Peas, Cooking Oil, Tea Bags,

Long Life Milk, Sugar, Cereals, Toilet Rolls, Toothpaste etc

Benefit delay and benefit re-assessment cause people across the UK to go hungry. Almost 40% of foodbank clients last year experienced benefit delay, often for the most tenuous of reasons. See for some examples.

Hope Nottingham co-ordinate the Trussell Trust food banks in Nottingham.
