We're supporting Derbyshire's food bank network to do what we can to ensure residents who are struggling with low income and debt have food in times of need.
Food bank facts:
- food banks are run by charities and non-profit organisations and mainly run by volunteers
- they provide a minimum of 3 days' emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis
- most of the food is donated by local people or provided by UK charity FareShare which distributes surplus 'fit for purpose' products from the food and drink industry, including major supermarkets, to community organisations
- to receive a food parcel, residents need to be referred to a food bank from children's centres, schools, the probation service, Derbyshire police or a range of other advice agencies
