About our foodbank

Here is an introduction to our project.

Our foodbank is a project founded by local people with the support of many Businesses and with the ongoing support of APEX.

Foyle Foodbank as part of The Trussell Trust network has received funding under their Pathfinder Project to provide greater support to people in the Foyle area.

We do this by finding out the crisis that is affecting the person and or the need for food support.  We are then able to provide wrap around support both from our own services and by working with a wide range of partnerships across the City.  This can be benefits advice, support with PIP applications and appeals, specialist debt advice, social supermarket projects, money management, counselling, nutrition and cooking classes, health and wellbeing programmes, housing, addiction support services etc..

Programmes/Services at Foodbank:

One off food and household package support
Longer-term food and household package support
Community Supermarket
Financial Inclusion Project – referrals to benefit & debt advice, money management, savings and good credit
