How to get emergency food

If you're struggling to feed yourself and or your family, we understand that you're probably going through a lot of stress and mixed emotions, so we want to make the process of accessing food for you and your family as simple and as stress free as we possibly can for you, so here's 3 really simple steps for you to follow:

  • Pick up a Foodbank Code, available from any local authority, Citizen's Advice, a doctors surgery, social services, Police, Homeless or housing charity etc... (if you get stuck please don't worry just come and see us anyway, we won't turn you away!)
  • Bring your Foodbank Code to The Foodbank at Dandys, Dandys Landscape Supplies Centre, Sealand Rd, Chester, CH1 6BS, Flintshire, North Wales.
  • Walk into our main shop and simply let us know your Foodbank Code at the counter, we will quickly and without any questions or judgment provide you with a box of free food to keep you and your loved ones going for a few days. If you need any extra items of toiletries or pet food please let us know. We are Covid Secure so remember to bring a mask with you, we can provide you with a mask if you don't have one though! As well as food, if you need any essential toiletries and or warm clothing, please let us know as we may be able to help with these items too via our friends at Share.

It's that simple! If you don't have a Foodbank Code but need food urgently please don't hesitate to contact Adam Dandy directly at adam@dandys.com please remember that we are here to help you, we make no judgement and we ask as few questions as is needed, so please don't worry! If we can take a little stress off your shoulders whilst you focus on your longterm goals, safety and wellbeing, then we've done what we aim to do. We are in uncharted times and you're not alone!
