Meeting Need

To get help for yourself or for someone else in a difficult situation without enough money to buy food or other household requisites, you may contact the Billericay Emergency Food Bank. It is here to help you through this difficult time. It should be possible to help you "top up" supplies for a few weeks.
You may call the dedicated phone number 07707 466262 to make an appointment to come to the Food Bank. This will usually be on a Tuesday afternoon.

When you come to the Food Bank, please bring some documentation, so that we can understand your needs.
If you cannot get out and about we may be able to visit you. If you are not able to carry your supplies home from the food bank, we may be able to deliver for you.
