Sometimes you may find yourself without money and any food to feed either you or your family. In such emergencies, food banks can provide you with a short-term supply of food and other essential items.
Food banks are non-profit organisations which receive publicly-donated food which is sorted by volunteers and distributed as food parcels. There are a number of food banks operating in Fife.
You can be referred by:
- Your Housing Officer
- Fife Council’s Welfare Fund Team phone 0300 555 0265
- Your social worker
- Citizens Advice and Rights Fife (carfweb.org)
- Your doctor or health visitor.
You can find more information about food banks and those operating in your area on the Fife Council website
Or contact your Housing Officer.
