Our foodbank works using a voucher referral system.
To get your Tottenham Foodbank Voucher you’ll need to call Haringey Citizen’s Advice on FREEPHONE 0808 278 7966 (Monday to Friday from 10 am until 4 pm). An advisor will give you to short assessment to complete and support you with your finances, benefits housing or employment issues too.
We know that anyone can find themselves at crisis point for a number of different reasons.
In order to provide the most appropriate help for the circumstances of your situation we work with local agencies. If they feel you are struggling to put food on the table, they will issue you with a foodbank voucher. The local agency can also provide long term support if needed to help address some of the issues behind the reasons for your crisis.
Our volunteers work with a number of different agencies to distribute our vouchers, such as children’s centres and health visitors. To find out more about the agencies that hold our vouchers and how you can get help, please contact us.
When you contact a referral agency they will take some basic details from you to complete the voucher. This will help them to identify the cause of your crisis and offer practical guidance. It also means we are able to prepare suitable emergency food for the right number of people.
Once you have been issued with a voucher, you can exchange this for a minimum of three days of emergency food.
If you are a referral agency and would like to become a registered voucher holder for our foodbank, please contact us to find out more.
