Benefits and support


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. The Trussell Trust Foodbanks aim to have one centre open each day in North and South Liverpool. Please check opening times below.

Your local church or community centre may have their own system and you may not need a voucher.

Micah foodbank is run by the city centre faith communities to help people in crisis in the inner city.

Other support

Live Well directory

The Live Well directory lists groups and organisations that help with food and meal deliveries, such as community food spaces and pantries.

Visit the Live Well directory for more information about community groups.

Community Food Spaces

Community Food Spaces are places where local people come together around good food and they: 

  • are commonly led by local community members and local community organisations
  • have good food at the heart of what they do, with many also connecting with activities or services beyond food
  • play a part in tackling local food waste, often using surplus food that would otherwise have gone to landfill

If you are interested in making new friends, saving money on your food bills, volunteering in your local community or tackling local food waste, find a Community Food Space in your local area.
