Leeds South Food bank

What is it?

A foodbank set up and run by Church’s from across South Leeds, in partnership with The Trussell Trust. Provide emergency food for 3 days and signposting advice to other agencies for longer term support.


How do clients access the service?

Clients can only access food by referral only. Referrals are made by local support organisations who issue the client with a food voucher which can be redeemed at a foodbank distribution centre.

To register as a referring agency please contact the foodbank and ask for a Distributor Handbook. Referrals to the same client are restricted to three per year.

  • Belle Isle Family Centre, Belle Isle Rd, LS10 3PG ‎  – Fridays 1:30-3:30
