Now more than ever, in the current economic climate, there is a real need to provide Food Parcels to help people in difficulty in the Isle of Man — people who need a helping hand and support to get through a difficult time.

The Isle of Man Foodbank was set up by a number of local charities and faith communities, along with government representatives from Social Care and the Office of Fair Trading. The mission is to meet the unique local community needs. The scheme first went into action on 1st December 2013.

Crisis Support
Isle of Man Foodbank provides crisis support in the form of food parcels to families and individuals who are referred to them when they are in crisis. Then, to help the person or family to get beyond the crisis, Foodbank will point them to relevant support organisations such as Debt Management, Life Skills, Careers and Budgeting.

For people seeking assistance from Foodbank 311550
For donations to Foodbank/Volunteering 469632

What goes into our food parcels?
Milk, fruit juice, pasta, rice, noodles, instant mashed potatoes, tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits, cereal, cans/jars of soup, vegetables, beans, pasta sauce, meat, fish, fruit and custard.

Food isn't the whole story though. Think about those other household essential supplies which we use every day, but would be really stuck if they ran out. (toiletries, toilet rolls, toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant. washing powder, soap bar, baby items, nappies, baby food, condiments, can openers).

Further information can be found at the Isle of Man Foodbank website.
