Haverhill Foodbank is busier than ever

A safety net for unexpected crisis


Our foodbank is a project founded by local churches and community groups, working together towards stopping hunger in our local area.

It only takes a change in circumstances; for example, loss of job, benefit cut or benefits delay and families already struggling to make ends meet either have to borrow money for food, or go without.

half a million


One third of all food parcels go to children


We are looking to help bridge the gap with food for a family or individual for at least 3 days (or until other agencies or services becomes available).


reasons for referral


We work closely with other agencies, i.e. family support workers, health visitors and Social Services.


Haverhill Foodbank was officially launched in October 2008 in partnership with The Trussell Trust and Haverhill and District Churches Together (HDCT).
