ST NEOTS FOODBANK 

Non-perishable foodstuffs are donated by individual donors, churches, schools and supermarkets. Parcels providing three days emergency food supplies are distributed by volunteers to individuals and families in need by reason of a short-term financial crisis, as identified by professionals in health, education and social services. Clients are signposted to other agencies for longer-term support.
