Food Bank

How does it work?

Green Lane will issue food vouchers to local organisations. They act as referral partners and give the vouchers to people whom they consider need food. The people then come to Green Lane where they exchange their voucher for food.

Green Lane will help anybody who needs support; the old, single people, young people & families from all backgrounds, religious beliefs and ethnic origins, without prejudice, Green Lane’s aim to treat everyone fairly & with dignity.

The individual or family is offered a drink & a chat with Green Lane staff or volunteer whilst their food is packed into bags.
