Food Banks

People can go hungry for many different reasons from redundancy to getting an unexpected bill when on a low income.

Should you find yourself in this position, food banks can provide short term access to emergency food and support for people experiencing a crisis.

Food banks are non-profit organisations that receive publicly donated food which is then sorted by volunteers and distributed as food parcels. The simple service of providing enough food for a few days can relieve stress, and prevent crime and family breakdown.

Several charitable organisations have set up food banks in Fife. Customers in crisis may be referred to a food bank by:

  • Fife Council's Welfare Fund team (tel. 0300 555 0265),
  • their Social Worker,
  • Out of Hours Social Worker (tel. 03451 55 00 99), or by
  • Citizens Advice & Rights Fife (www.cabfife.org.uk,  Units 7 & 8, Craig Mitchell House, Flemington Road, Glenrothes, KY7 5QF).


Some GPs and health visitors can also refer you.

As well as food banks, a number of institutions in Fife also provide drop-in sessions where the homeless and people at risk of being made homeless can access to hot food.
