Mansfield & Ashfield Emergency Foodbank

St John’s Community Foodbank has been serving their local community for the last five years and has agreed to take over this project from Ashfield Voluntary Action and continue to work with them in partnership alongside Mansfield CVS, Sutton Christian Fellowship and a number of other organisations so that the Emergency Foodbank, over time, will better meet the needs of people in Ashfield and Mansfield.

The service is accessed via a referral from a social worker, support worker, Local Council, Job Centre, Citizen’s Advice, Health Visitor or similar agency. They will ring the hotline on your behalf which is open Monday – Friday from 10am – 4pm on 07592 482 472. You will then be given a reference number and told where you can collect your parcel.
