Abingdon Foodbank at least three days of nutritionally balanced, non-perishable food.
The Trussell Trust has worked with nutritionists to ensure food parcels contains sufficient nutrition for at least three days worth of healthy, balanced meals for individuals and families.
A typical food parcel includes:
- Pasta sauce
- Tinned meat
- Tinned vegetables
- Tinned fruit
Our foodbank can usually adapt your food parcel to meet your dietary needs, for example, gluten free, halal or vegetarian. When you arrive at the foodbank centre, a volunteer will chat to you about an special dietary requirements you may have.
We are supported by other local organisations who contribute fresh food for us to redistribute when it is available. The quantity and variety of this depends on the supplier, so we can never guarantee that there will be fresh food at any given time.
Many foodbanks also provide essential non-food items such as toiletries and hygiene products, helping people in crisis to maintain dignity and feel human again.
