Foodbank vouchers

Our foodbank works using a voucher referral system. Find out more about how we work.

We know that anyone can find themselves at crisis point for a number of different reasons.

In order to give you the right help we work with local agencies who can issue you with a food bank voucher, if you are struggling to put food on the table.  The local agency can also provide longer term support to help address the issues behind your crisis. 

Our foodbank works with a number of different agencies, such as Citizens Advice, children’s centres and health visitors.

The local Citizen’s Advice can be found in Lyons Court, Dorking, RH4 1AB.

Drop In  times at Citizen’s Advice are as follows:

10am – 1pm (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and  Friday)

10am -12:30pm and  1pm – 4pm (Wednesday) .

When you visit a partner 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 three days of emergency food at your nearest foodbank centre.

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.
