This is an app to help support the network of hundreds of food banks across the UK.
* Choose your local Foodbank from the list and the app will automatically update itself with the information from your selected Foodbank.
* The shopping list is updated regularly by your local Foodbank team and highlights those items most needed.
* Updates and stories from your local Foodbank are also downloaded direct to the app to keep supporters informed of news.
* Notifications are also used to notify supporters of new updates from the Foodbank team and also if the Foodbank is low on stock of certain food items.
* Supporters can now also donate financially to their chosen Foodbank via this app using JustGiving. Donations are routed through 'Network Church Sheffield' as the umbrella charity which then distributes the funds to the specified Foodbank.
* Each Foodbank can add multiple locations if they have more than one outlet or collection/drop-off point
* Full localisation - e.g. Welsh translation available for Welsh Foodbanks

More information about Foodbanks...
1 in 5 people are living below the poverty line in the UK.
Every day, near where you live there are families struggling to put food on the table.
For people on low incomes, a sudden crisis - redundancy, benefit delay or even an unexpected bill - can mean going hungry.
Every day parents skip meals to feed their children and people are forced to choose between paying the rent and eating.
How a Foodbank works:
Food is donated
Schools, churches, businesses and individuals donate non-perishable, in-date food to a Foodbank.
Food is also collected at 'Supermarket Collections': These are events held at supermarkets where volunteers give shoppers a 'Foodbank shopping list' and ask them to buy an extra item or two for local people in crisis.
Food is sorted and stored
Volunteers sort food to check that it's in-date and pack it into boxes ready to be given to people in need.
Frontline care professionals identify people in need
We partner with front-line care professionals who identify people in crisis and give them a voucher.
Clients receive food
Foodbank clients bring their voucher to a Foodbank centre where it can be redeemed for three days emergency food. On taking their voucher to the Foodbank centre, people receive a warm welcome, a hot drink and a food parcel. We also put people in touch with agencies who can help resolve the underlying causes of the crisis.
What's in a foodbox?
Each foodbox contains a minimum of three days nutritionally balanced, non-perishable food.
Foodbanks rely on the support of local communities.
Your local Foodbank provides emergency food and support to local people in crisis.

Great idea! I use it to find out what my local Foodbank is desperately short of - or what they really don't need!
Weekly updates needed! This is a great app and of course it's all for a good cause. The only issue is like most other users agree , it needs to be updated regularly.
Needs updates every week
Great idea, easy to use Tells me exactly what my local food bank needs most, and what they are over-stocked with already. A great way to ensure that my small donations are as useful as possible.
Not bad! Not bad app, excellent idea but the stocks need updating a tad bit more often... otherwise you'll find out what the food bank needed.... two months ago!
Great Have to agree with the reviewer below regarding the updating though. Not sure if i am going to be buying the correct stuff.
Fantastic App Food Banks do an amazing job of helping those who need it most. Support you local Food Bank.
Great App Love this app. As a Foodbank manager it helps us to keep our supporters updated.
Quality Idea Wish I'd found this sooner! Love the idea and has some super features, great app to help these fantastic food banks out!!
Love it Thank you foodbank I think you are all doing a great and this app is very helpful
Food Bank Keeps you updated with the food that's most needed. What a great idea.
Great Good way to get an up to date shopping list and updates. Easy to use.
Does exactly what it says on the (food) tin I have been using this app and its predecessor for over a year, and it works really well on a number of levels: it helps me buy the things that my local foodbank is most in need of, keeps me informed via their updates of what they are doing, and helps remind me to keep donating.
Great site! Well done to all those who put so much effort into this.
Meets an important need An easy way to keep in touch with your local Foodbank and meeting their urgent needs.
Useful app Good to be able what local foodbank most need. It is a bit big though at nearly 20 mb, which hopefully will be reduced as it develops.
Easy to use. Soo simple to use, to the point amd relevant
Does all that is needed Provides everything you need to know about your local Foodbank. Complete with the latest shopping list of the particular items needed to maintain supplies to the hungry in crisis. Push notifications make sure that supporters know quickly of any important developments.
Excellent app Great app to support any foodbank. Lots of useful features especially reminder alert.
A great way to help your foodbank Love the reminder function for when we get the shopping done. So simple to use. Can easily see what we need to buy. Every food bank should sign up to use this app. Great stuff.
Let down because nearest foodbanks listed are hours and hours away from here and certainly are not my nearest. Has great potential but you need to get all foodbanks listed on here and not charge them to sign up because I doubt that will happen and the app will just die with no users. Design is also quite unprofessional looking too.
I live in the middle of Bristol which isn't exactly a small city yet my nearest foodbank listed is Cardiff which is 25miles and a bridge fee away! Love the idea though
Limited locations Good idea, but with limited locations it's hard to judge what my local foodbank requires. Will use for ideas.
Great idea, but needs updating I am really happy to help and was excited to think that I could help with targeted assistance. Seems my "local" food bank is 52 miles away. Perhaps an update should include registering new food banks and making them aware of the app. Maybe it does and I'm missing something.
Great idea Easy way to donate what is needed
It gives locations but doesn't seem to upload shopping list of what is actually needed
Great idea shame it doesn't show my local one can't travel far
Scunthorpe food bank A simple idea but a lot of hard work to make happen
I'm sure it's a great app, but my local food bank isn't on here.
Great start I volunteer at a food bank and this app is a great help. Other banks need to be aware and join this app. Also put a note stating that most food banks aren't on this app but you will have one near by.
Great app. Lets me know exactly what my local foodbank needs when I'm out doing the shopping. To those who say it doesn't cover their local foodbank, that's possibly because your foodbank hasn't signed up (or can't afford to register) - not the fault of the app.
If your nearest foodbank isnt on here then you need to tell them to register with redemption media the list of foodbanks are just the ones that are registered :)
Very poor I live in Hertfordshire and my nearest Foodbank is Broxbourne Foodbank and there are also banks in Enfield, Edmonton etc and yet this app tells me that my nearest is Richmond?!
Limited! The app says my nearest food bank is 78 miles away.....
Really great! Very simple and very handy! Our church collects on behalf of foodbank and it's a very necessary resource, sadly. One or two items a week, if you can manage it will make a big difference to someone's life. Go to the trussell trust website to find nearest foodbank - tesco & asda have permanent collections in store so buy stuff there and drop it in the designated trolley! ?
Not helpful at all Did not help
