Scunthorpe Foodbank is hosted within St George's Church every Wednesday from 1pm to 2.30pm.
The Foodbank is operated in partnership with friends and colleagues from Scunthorpe Baptist Church and Crosby Together and it works on a voucher referral system. To receive Foodbank assistance you will need to present a voucher from one of the referring agencies - see www.scunthorpe.foodbank.org.uk for more information.
If you cannot make it to the Foodbank Centre within St George's you can visit the main centre at Scunthorpe Baptist Church on a Monday or Thursday afternoon from 1pm to 2.30pm.
90% of items distributed by Scunthorpe Foodbank come from public donations and we urgently need more food stuffs for the parcels. Can you donate any of these items?
