Haverhill Foodbank

A safety net for unexpected crisis 

03 Tesco Food Collection

It only takes a change in circumstances; for example, loss of job, benefit cut or benefits delay and families already struggling to make ends meet either have to borrow money for food, or go without.

We are looking to help bridge the gap with food for a family or individual for at least 3 days (or until other agencies or services becomes available). We work closely with other agencies, i.e. family support workers, health visitors and Social Services.

Donate food

We can only provide help thanks to the invaluable donations from the Haverhill public. Thank you!

As of June 2017, we are currently short of ....

  • Small jars of coffee
  • Juice
  • Sugar
  • Tea bags
  • Biscuits
  • Sponge puddings

We are always in need of the following non-perishable items: 

  • UHT milk
  • Sugar
  • Tinned meat
  • Tinned fruit
  • Tinned desserts
  • Chocolate & treats

Haverhill Foodbank was officially launched in October 2008 in partnership with The Trussell Trust and Haverhill and District Churches Together (HDCT).
