The local agency can also provide long term support if needed tohelp address some of the issues behind the reasons for your crisis. Our foodbank works with a number of different agencies, such as Citizen's Advice, Children's Centres and Health Visitors and to find out more about the agencies that hold our vouchers and how you can get help please call 01724 848 388 or email: foodbank@scunthorpebaptist.co.uk. When you visit a referral agency they will take some basic details from you to complete the voucher and this will help them 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 3 days emergency food at your nearest foodbank centre.
