Kettering Independent Foodbank exists to provide people with food in a time of crisis, our aim is to meet the basic food needs for 3 days, however due to the generosity of our donors we are often able to supplement this with bakery, frozen, fresh, as well as toiletry and household items. The average value of a family parcel is £139.22. If you’re struggling to afford to feed yourself or your family, please reach out to us.

Tel : 01536 512838 or 07709 741353 and we’ll arrange for a member of the team to give you a call back.   An assessment of your crisis will be carried out over the phone and a parcel issued if appropriate.  Due to the increase in fraudulant requests we may ask for proof of Identity on your first visit.

Short dated or out of Best Before dated items are placed outside for you to help yourself.

The number of meals issued through food parcels in May was 5588 to 254 adults and 449 children.

I just want to write to you all that work so hard to run the foodbank. To help people like myself who have had to use the food bank, a very big thank you.

If it wasn't for you all I'm not sure what I would have done. You have never judged me, at any time. I am incredably greatful to you all.

From the bottom of my heart thank you.



We have just got our parcel and I'm overwhelmed by your generosity, from the bottom of my heart Thank you. I don't know what else to say but your help was very needed and you have given me so much even my daughter was in tears with me at how grateful we are. We have had such a hard time this month with the death of our dog and cat, then came the news that my daughter is unwell with a heart condition I'm praying that she will be OK. Please tell all those that work so hard at the food bank that we said thank you.
