  • a shared meal to eat together 
  • prepared or cooked meals to eat at home
  • a food parcel with cupboard staples to prepare and cook at home 
  • low-cost fresh and chilled foods to prepare and cook at home

There are also a number of ‘Welcoming Spaces’ open across the city. Welcoming Spaces are community spaces (such as a community centre, children’s centre or place of faith), where people can meet up, socialise, keep warm and access support, relating to the cost of living. Many of these spaces also offer some form of food support. Please check this map for more information.

This page is going to be developed over the coming year. If you have suggestions for how to improve the way we communicate about food support, or specific questions about food support in the city, please email
