Local people donate food which is stored in our warehouse. A variety of agencies identify people who are in crises need and issue them with a food voucher. People can come to our distribution centres in Ely, March, Chatteris, Soham and Littleport to exchange the voucher for a food parcel which gives 3 days of food with a nutritional balance. At our centres people are welcomed, listened to, and can be offered other advice and signposting to help address their longer term needs.Why the community needs us
