Get help paying for food

The Foodbank

The Trussell Trust runs the largest network of food banks in the UK, giving emergency food and support to people in crisis.

You can call or email the Foodbank where you can talk through your situation and they will put you in touch with the relevant local agency.

Where appropriate you will be supplied with a Foodbank Voucher. You will need to take your Foodbank voucher to your nearest Foodbank Centre.

You can find a list of the local centres and opening times here: Locations | Blaenau Gwent Foodbank Your voucher will then be exchanged for a parcel of 3 day’s emergency food
