Buckingham Food Bank
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:
Buckinghamshire Council Helping Hands on: 01296 531 151 (Mon to Fri office hours) 0800 999 7677 (out-of-hours emergency)
Citizens’ Advice on 0808 278 7938 or 01494 785660
Your doctors’ surgery
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 those 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 of food parcels you may require.
The Foodbank is open between 10:00 and 12:00 every Tuesday to drop off food items, toiletries etc. Sorry, we can't accept fresh food or baby food but will gratefully accept most other things. Or if you would like to give a monetary donation please click here for more details. Thank you for your generosity!
Please be aware that items dropped off in Tesco stores do not come to your local Buckingham Foodbank.
If you need help with wider issues in your life and need someone to talk to, do please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or one of the other churches in the town who are there to listen.
