Food Bank Access Information - Lutterworth and Villages
We've found out about local food bank services so you don't need to go without when finances are tricky.
First - Visit a referral agency and tell the reception that you need a Red Food Vouchers
Referral agencies in Husbands Bosworth:
Husbands Bosworth Parish Council Office (Tues & Thurs 2:45-5:45, Weds & Fri 8:45 - 12:30)
Husbands Bosworth Medical Centre (You will need to be a registered patient and make an appointment)
Referral agencies in Lutterworth:
Citizens Advice in the Town Hall (Monday 10-3)
Lutterworth Church Gate Centre (Mon-Fri 10-12)
Age Concern near the Town Hall (not only for elderly users. Mon-Sat 9:30-4:30)
Lutterworth Medical Centre - Wycliffe Practice and Marshani Practice on Gilmorton Road (you don't need to be registered there. Mon-Fri 8:30-5:50)
The referral agency will ask for some details: name, address, and date of birth, number of people in your household and the reason for current financial difficulty. It is perfectly OK to explain that the summer holidays mean no free school meals which is putting a strain on your finances.
The referral agencies are very understanding and are there to offer support, not judgement.Once you have your red food voucher, it will be valid immediately and can be exchanged for a 3 day emergency food parcel at Lutterworth Church Church Gate Centre on Tuesdays between 1-3 and on Fridays between 10-12.
If it is more convenient, another Food Bank is available in Countesthorpe Methodist Church on Tuesdays 12-2 and Fridays 2-4.
