Feeding Ashfield

Feeding Ashfield logo

Feeding Ashfield is a network of local organisations working collaboratively with the aim of providing improved access to food and educational opportunities throughout the district. 

Services available

Food banks

There are several Food Banks distributing food parcels within the Ashfield District. Residents typically need a referral to access support from food banks, however local food banks will support you in gaining a referral should you need it.

Find the location and contact details of your nearest food bank on our interactive map.

Food clubs

Food clubs help to reduce food waste by offering residents good quality food at a low cost. You do not need to be referred to a food club as many food clubs are open to all.

You can find out more, including the locations of food clubs in Ashfield on our interactive map.

Social eating opportunities

There are many opportunities across the district for everyone to help combat food waste whilst enjoying a tasty meal together. You may like to volunteer to help with the running of one of these projects, a great opportunity to share your skills whilst also learning from others. Or it might be that you fancy eating good food in the company of others. Either way, you’d be more than welcome at one of the projects outlined on the interactive map.

Schools and community groups

As a network, we are keen to collaborate with schools and other community groups. Whether this be promoting services on offer to families, supporting with setting up food education activities and veg growing areas or facilitating allotment tours.

If you are interested in working together, please get in touch.
