Haverhill Foodbank

A safety net for unexpected crisis

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.




We are looking to help bridge the gap with food for a family or individual for at least three days (or until other agencies or services becomes available). We work closely with other agencies, i.e. family support workers, health visitors and Social Services.


Food donation ideas


Food donations

We can only operate the Haverhill Foodbank thanks to the invaluable donations from the public in Haverhill, Sible Hedingham, Linton, Clare and the surrounding areas.




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