Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. A simple box of food makes a big difference, with foodbanks helping prevent crime, housing loss, family breakdown and mental health problems.
You can donate non-perishable, in-date food to the Magherafelt Food bank via The Lighthouse. We would be happy to deliver any donations of food to the Food Bank on your behalf.
Care professionals such as doctors, health visitors, schools and social workers identify people in crisis and issue them with a foodbank voucher. This entitles them to receive a foodbank parcel of three days’ nutritionally balanced, non-perishable food.
The Magherafelt Food bank is based at Magherafelt Baptist Church. For more information and contact details please click here.
