Foodbanks provide around 3 days food for your whole household if you can’t afford to buy food. Some foodbanks need a referral, and some can help you without being referred.
If you need a referral, your support worker or school may be able to refer you, but if not, you can contact Advice Portsmouth – call 023 9279 4340, text 07789 550593 or email email@example.com . You can also contact your local housing office if you are a city council tenant.
