What We Do

The Tay Bridgehead Foodbank supports people who have need of basic food. Like many food banks we are dependant on the goodwill of individual donations for food and money.

Our clients are referred by social workers, health care visitors, community psychiatric nurses, headteachers, police, clergy, doctors, etc. However, clients can self refer by filling in the contact form or calling through our ‘Contact Us’ page.

Once contact is made we try to get back to you as soon as we can and assess the situation with you. We normally support clients for 4 weeks and then review the needs again with them.

Parcels are made up once a week and people living in Tayport, Leuchars and Guardbridge can pick up their parcels from the former Council Offices on a Wednesday afternoon between 2 – 4.  People living in Wormit and Newport can uplift their parcels from the Rio , again on a Wednesday afternoon.  Anyone who is unable to collect their parcel due to disability may have their parcel delivered.  During the present crisis, parcels are being delivered but once things return to normal, the previous arrangements will be re-instated.  Emergency parcel requests are dealt with as soon as possible and dietary requirements can normally be accommodated.

Our hope is that we can help or at the least point you in the direction where help can be found if it is something we unable to support.
