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 (1 person), a couple (2 people) or a family (3-4 people).  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.

Items in the food parcel can include: Pasta, rice, cereals, cooking sauce, ready meals, tinned vegetables, tinned fruit, tinned meat and/or fish, biscuits, tinned soup, tinned or instant potatoes and a variety of other useful cupboard items.

When referring it is useful to know nappy sizes and baby food age if they do require them

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.
