Glasgow SW Foodbank work with a range of local agencies who meet people at risk of going hungry.  A typical food parcel contains a minimum of three days of nutritionally balanced, non-perishable, tinned and dried foods that have been donated by the local community.  A typical food parcel includes: breakfast cereal, soup, pasta, rice, pasta sauce, baked beans, tinned meat, tinned vegetables, instant mash, UHT milk, tea, coffee, sugar, tinned dessert and biscuits.  If you make the foodbank aware of special dietary requirements, or if you have a baby needing nappies/baby foods, they may be able to help with these too.  My constituency office is a registered referral agency for foodbank vouchers.  We do not issue vouchers on request – this is only done after an assessment of individual needs and circumstances.
