Food Bank Xtra is our partnership with the MK Food Bank, and is an emergency food service for people in crisis.

If you're in a high risk category (e.g. over 70, you would usually be eligible for a flu jab, or you are pregnant) and have no other local support (e.g. friends/family/neighbours) and need help to access food or medicine, call us on 01908 252398.  We can take calls Monday to Friday between 9am and 5:15pm (NB not on bank holidays). Please note, this helpline is people who have no other support to turn to. If you do have friends and neighbours who can help, please do keep this resource free for people in need.
