You can refer a client up to three times in a six month period. Each referral allows the client to collect on four consecutive weeks. On the fourth week, we will inform the client that they need a new referral. It will take up to three working days to process a referral.

Each collection will provide the client with three days of emergency food aid.

We will text the client once we have processed the referral, letting them know when and where to come to collect.

THE CLIENT SHOULD NOT ATTEND THE FOOD BANK UNTIL THEY HAVE RECEIVED A TEXT FROM US
