As well as receiving food, the client may be directed to further help and support if required. Anyone who is struggling to buy food can be referred to a foodbank. Referrals are typically made by local agencies such as CAB, GP’s and health visitors.
Uttlesford Foodbank is delivered by a team of local volunteers. There are 4 food collection points in Uttlesford, Saffron Walden, Thaxted, Takeley and the Community Hub in Dunmow, which is a collection point that CVSU manages.
The Hub in Dunmow has handed out food parcels on 128 occasions in the past year.
If you wish to donate food to Uttlesford Food bank you can look at the foodbank website to see which items are most needed.
