Buckingham Food Bank

Food Bank June 2020 (002)

If you don’t have enough food to eat, we can help! We run a local Foodbank distributing non-perishable and fresh food in Buckingham and the surrounding villages. Simply ask to be referred by:

Citizens’ Advice by calling 03444 111444
Your doctors’ surgery
Community Nurses
Health Visitors
Social Services
Local churches

Our team of volunteers will then deliver supplies directly to your home, or confidentially through your referring agency. We also have nappies, toiletries, female sanitary products, and other special items on request and can take note of special dietary needs e.g. allergies or intolerances.

This service covers short-term emergencies such a sudden unemployment or loss of benefits. Therefore it’s crucial that the underlying issues leading to your food crisis are also dealt with, which is why it is important you seek help from an agency such as Citizens Advice and the others listed above. Sorry, we do not take calls direct from the public. Those referring you will advise us of your food needs including the number food parcels you may require.

If you can donate goods, please drop them off at The Centre, Verney Close, MK18 1JP between 10:30 am and 12:00 every Tuesday. Or if you would like to give a donation please click here for more details, where there’s also a list of what we need most to replenish our stocks. Please be aware that items dropped off in Tesco & Waitrose stores do not go to your local Buckingham Foodbank.

If you need help with wider issues in your life and need someone to talk to, do please contact care@bpchurch.uk or one of the other churches in the town who are there to listen.
