UPDATE – Presteigne Outreach Service

The Foodbank Outreach Service in Presteigne Youth Centre, finished as of Monday 18th December 2023.

We are very grateful to the Youth Centre for giving us the opportunity to have a ‘Pop-up’ foodbank on a Monday morning over the last six months, but we really do need more storage space than our cupboard and sole access for receiving donations, or making up emergency parcels.

We are fully committed to providing a service to East Radnor and as of January 2024 we will deliver crisis food, toiletries and baby basics, to the community of Presteigne and surrounding villages, on a Tuesday or Friday, from our Knighton foodbank base.


Working together to help the hungry and those in crisis in Knighton, Presteigne and East Radnor

     

Are you experiencing difficulties buying enough food for you and your family, due to a sudden crisis – redundancy, loss of or delay in receiving benefits? If so you can be referred to the Knighton & Presteigne Foodbank for help by Social Services, your family Doctor or Health Visitor, Jobcentre Plus, Mental Health Services or your Church Minister among others. Referral agencies and organisations can find relevant information on our Information / Referrals page.

If you qualify for a food parcel you or the service or agency supporting you can make a telephone referral by contacting Helen Anderson, the Knighton & Presteigne Foodbank manager, on 07731 524 058 or by email to helen@knightonfoodbank.co.uk. You will then be given an appointment to collect a food parcel from the Knighton & Presteigne Foodbank at the Baptist Church on Norton Street in Knighton. If you need food urgently but are not in touch with any of the referral agencies we may still be able to help. You can also contact the manager for more information by using the form on the Contact page.
