The PACT Petersfield Food Bank provides food packs from tinned and packaged foods and makes them available to people in urgent need. We have also recently introduced a voucher scheme so that we can offer fresh fruit, vegetables, bread, eggs, cheese and milk.

The Management Committee: this oversees various aspects of the work – liaison with referral agencies, collection points, volunteer training etc. We try to ensure that each person only has one job! We have a group of over 30 volunteers to support the service.

To access the Food Bank you need to have a form from one of the following agencies:

  • PACT Churches
  • Winton House
  • Citizen’s Advice
  • Home-Start Butser

Food packs are issued from:

Volunteers welcome:

Volunteers work on a rota system receiving donations, sorting and storing food, preparing food packs and distributing them to people in need. All volunteers receive training and most people work once or twice a month. Sorting is done on Monday and Wednesday mornings at the Methodist Church and the packs are distributed on Tuesday and Friday mornings from the Salvation Army.
