Free Food Bag
A monthly food bank, run by the Arthur’s Hill Angelou Centre and The Muslim Initiative. Runs for just one hour from 2pm on the first Sunday of each month.
The food bank is open to anyone in need, men and women, regardless of their faith or non-belief. A formal referral is not required and people can just turn up (or email firstname.lastname@example.org beforehand to let organisers know they are coming).
Before providing anyone with a food bag, organisers will ask the reason why people are in need and ask for proof of address.
In addition to the monthly food bank, a mobile service is also offered, where volunteers will drop off a food bag to those in need at their home. This may be because they cannot get to the monthly food bank venue or some other reason. For this service, a referral must be made by a professional working with a client in a crisis situation. Deliveries are currently only available to addresses in the West of Newcastle.
