Foodbank and Other Help
Help from Foodshare
Our Food Hub is a foodbank with dignity.
We offer help to individuals or families where one or more person in the home is not able to eat at least one full day during a week because they can not afford it without help.
How to Get Food
The boxes below explain how to get food.
We help people living in and around Maidenhead.
If you are in need of help and are out of our catchment area, the following other groups may be able to help:
One Can Trust (High Wycombe and Beaconsfield)
We understand that some people have such an urgent need for food that they do not have time to organise a voucher.
Anyone who finds themselves in that situation should leave a message on our emergency voucher helpline,
Please note this line is only for genuine emergencies and can only be used for a single voucher. Once we have made sure you have enough to eat, we then help you find a referrer for future weeks where needed.
Help from Others
The Council offers many areas of support:
Sustainable Warmth Grant (help with energy costs)
General Help (a list of all available help)
Local Support Groups
We work with several other organisations that provide help.
The Baby Bank for babies and children's needs
The Brett Foundation for general needs
Citizens Advice for financial and other problems
The DASH Charity for victims of domestic abuse
The Samaritans helpline for whatever you are going through
Re:Charge for young families seeking support and a safe space
Applying for a voucher
We have around 100 organisations that are able to identify if the foodbank is appropriate for you. They issue vouchers for the delivery of food directly to your home.
If you are unsure where to get started, here are some tips:
If you have a child at school, ask the school
If you have a professional support agency, ask your support worker
For general enquiries, contact the Citizen’s Advice Bureau
RBWM Welfare Office in the Housing Department
If you are in social housing, ask the housing association
