FOR FOOD BANK VISITORS
- To help us keep everyone as safe as possible, please stay outside the door until invited inside
- We will keep a 2 metre distance apart and will ask how we can help you
- When inside the food bank, please use the hand sanitiser. Please do not come inside if you have been told to self-isolate.
We appreciate any help or support , especially during this difficult time. We are following Covid-19 guidance and as a result, we are asking that if you are calling at the food bank to drop off food, please knock at the food bank door and/or leave items on the doorstep. Alternatively, you can leave food donations in the Food Bank box for us to collect, in the Co-op or Costcutters (Knighton) or the Spar (Presteigne).
We prepare food parcels on a Tuesday / Friday 10 -11.30 (Knighton Baptist Church) or a Thursday 10-11.30 (Presteigne Baptist Church), and these are then delivered by myself or a volunteer, to our friends in the community who are experiencing hardship.
Once again, thank you for supporting our food bank,
Please keep safe and well.
You can find links to sites, including NHS Direct Wales, with current useful information about the coronavirus pandemic on our Links page.

Working together to help the hungry and those in crisis in Knighton 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 Food Bank 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 Food Bank manager, on 07731 524 058 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will then be given an appointment to collect a food parcel from the Knighton Food Bank 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.
We also run an outreach centre in Presteigne Baptist Church on Hereford Street in Presteigne. See below for opening times.
