We currently have over 50 agencies who can make a referral, including schools, GP, Social Services, Health Visitors, Citizens Advice, Probation and Housing.
Food parcels are designed to last five days and include items like tins of meat, fish, vegetables, fruit, puddings, pasta, rice, custard,tea, coffee, juice, pasta sauce, cereals, biscuits, baked beans, soup.
Basics Bank is currently open at Testwood Baptist Church 10am-12noon Monday-Friday during term time. Please phone to check at all other times.
Basics Bank relies on donations of food from members of the community, local churches, schools and businesses and is run by a fantastic team of volunteers. These donations are brought to Basics Bank which is based at Testwood Baptist Church.
If you would like to support Basics Bank by providing food please deliver to Testwood Baptist Church, The Chapel café and charity shop or the donation trolley in ASDA Totton.
