Emergency Support. 

Since March 2020 we have supported over 320 households in our community of St Matthews and provided over 13,000 meals. We now have to change the way we offer support and can only offer support to those in our community to those most in need. 

To apply for foodbank support you -


1. Must live in St Matthews Estate 

2. Be able to provide photographic ID, such as Passport, Driving licence and proof of your address, preferably a utility bill (Gas, Electric, phone bill) that is dated within the last 3 months. 

3. You need to have had a loss of income since March 2020. You may have lost your job, you might have been furloughed, you may be on a zero-hours contract and working fewer hours. We may ask for proof of this. 

Once you have submitted your application you will be informed if it is successful within 48 hours. If you are successful you will be sent an email with a link to then choose and order up to 30 items. You will also choose a time slot when you can collect the items from our office (Similar to click and collect). We may substitute items if your chosen items are not available.
