Clients receive an eVoucher from one of the many referral agencies we work with: https://keynsham.foodbank.org.uk/get-help/how-to-get-help/

We distribute food via our three distribution centres (2 in Keynsham and one in Saltford), which are open for 3 sessions during the week. Our volunteers help ensure clients receive store-cupboard food in line with the size of heir fmily, and dietary needs and preferences a far as possible. We also supply other household and personal cleaning items. We signpost other local services releaavnt to the client, as far as possible.

Our volunteers also collect food donated by the public (via Tesco Keynsham, Waitrose Keynsham, Co-Op Keynsham, Co-Op Pensford, Pensford Post Office and more), sort and store it at our warehouse, then restock our centres.

We work closely with the Trussell Trust and other local charities and orgnaisations with aligned goals.

We are a charity and limited company, entirely run by volunteers.
