Help in a crisis
Foodbanks and deliveries
Foodbanks in Liverpool
Your local foodbank can provide at least three days' emergency food and support to people in crisis. You can get a voucher from your:
- health visitor
- social worker
- local citizens advice or charity organisation
Take your voucher to your local Trussell Trust foodbank to receive your emergency food.
Your local church or community centre may have their own system and you may not need a voucher.
Foodbanks - opening times
During the coronavirus outbreak, Trussell Trust Foodbanks aim to have one centre open each day in North and South Liverpool. Please check opening times below.
Micah foodbank is run by the city centre faith communities to help people in crisis in the inner city.
Food and meal deliveries for those in need
If you have a medical condition that makes you extremely vulnerable to coronavirus you can register with GOV.UK for food parcels and other support.
You can ask for help from the Liverpool Good Neighbour scheme with the tasks you cannot do because you cannot leave home during the coronavirus outbreak, such as food shopping. The scheme is not designed to replace any social care or NHS services you may receive but it can give you additional support.
During the coronavirus outbreak a host of local charities and community groups are offering food parcels, meal deliveries and support with shopping for those who cannot leave home.
Food and other delivery services
The Guide Liverpool, Independent Liverpool and Liverpool BID Company have compiled a directory of local businesses that can deliver food and other supplies to your doorstep during the coronavirus outbreak.
