Foodbanks and food hubs
On the map below you can see the food hubs and foodbanks in our local area (that we are aware of).
The key on the map shows which type of food hub or foodbank is in each location. The three types are listed below, with information about any referral that may or may not be needed.
Where a referral is needed, these can usually be made by Citizens Advice, GPs, faith groups (like churches or mosques), social workers, health visitors, or some Council staff, such as Benefits Assessors.
- The locations marked as 'self-referral locations' do not require a referral - you can just visit the hub during the opening hours.
- The locations marked as 'Trussel Trust foodbanks' require a referral. Find out more, including locations and opening hours, by visiting the Trussel Trust website or asking our team.
- There are also a couple of locations marked as 'The Need Project', which also require a referral. Find out more by visiting The Need Project's website.
The Gamlingay Food Hub is actively working to prevent food waste, and anyone who would like to support efforts to avoid food from going to landfill is welcome to visit.
Further information on specific food hubs can be found on the How Are You South Cambs website.
We advise checking online beforehand as opening times may vary. For self-referral locations, no voucher is required.
