We believe everyone deserves access to food regardless of circumstances. Our foodbank is open to everyone and you can self refer. If you need an emergency food parcel or more information,  please call Reconnect on 01283 547211.

Our foodbank is run entirely by volunteers and during 2018, we issued 1,533 parcels helping over 1,990 people in the Burton upon Trent area.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will the food parcel last?

Each parcel contains enough food for at least 3 days.

How often am I allowed to go?

You are allowed up to four parcels a year.

Do I need to prove I don’t have any food?

No, however we do ask some basic questions when you collect your parcel, such as name, address and reason for needing the food.

This is so we can collate the data to present to relevant organisations and to keep track of how many food parcels we distribute.

All data is kept anonymous.

Do I need to bring I.D?

Yes, we will need to see a form of identification. This can be a utility bill, driving license, passport or birth certificate.

When are you open?

You can collect your foodbank parcel from Reconnect (opposite Asda roundabout) in Burton on Trent, between the hours of 9am – 7pm
