What’s in a “food parcel”?

Food Parcels” are designed to meet the needs of the recipients. Thus we provide a different size parcel depending on whether  it is intended for a single person, a couple or a family.  Each parcel will contain enough food for at least three days, but many report making them last a week. Certain items such as cereals and biscuits can of course last longer.

When referring it is useful to know the ages of any young children since we can also add nappies and baby food.

We usually include some toiletries, but these can be specifically requested, especially if the person is for instance sleeping rough. A person or family in B&B can also be referred for a “non-cooker” parcel.

We supply parcels appropriate to vegetarians, halal, diabetics, celiacs, etc. upon request.
