Description

Do not refer through Refernet. The Westminster Foodbank provides three days+ worth of nutritionally balanced (non-perishable) food to residents in the City of Westminster experiencing financial crisis, through a voucher referrral scheme. We provide short-term support whilst residents find a long-term solution to the difficulties they are going through. This is a referral only service, we accept referrals from statutory bodies and registered charities who have signed up to issue food parcel vouchers. We currently operate an Appointments Only Collection Service; we are working with Westminster Council's Volunteer Team to provide deliveries to those who are unable to collect due to medical issues.
