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). Please see the written list below the map to see which foodbanks require a referral.

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. Please email to receive a referral from the Council.

  • 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 'Trussell Trust foodbanks' require a referral. Find out more, including locations and opening hours, by visiting the Trussell 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. 

If you do not live near a foodbank but are in need of emergency food and cannot travel, please email
