The Well-being Service
Say 'No' to period poverty
Community Growing Project
More people than ever before are asking for vouchers so they can use Gloucester’s food bank. The Covid crisis has hit many families in the pocket, and they need help. GL Communities issues vouchers which people can redeem for food.
“GL Communities provides a unique service based on the needs of people living in difficult circumstances. We will continue to offer help, where needed, with our advice services ready to give the support and guidance on issues like welfare benefits and debt work. We thank the Gloucester Food Bank for their tremendous work throughout the pandemic.”
How does the system work?
Anyone who needs a food voucher can call GL Communities on 01452 505544 and they will be asked the reason they need to claim. That could be because of a benefit deduction, loss of income or an overspend caused by an unexpected bill.
If the request is granted, the voucher will be entered on the computer. The food bank in Great Western Road will then deliver the requested amount.
-You don’t need a physical voucher and you don’t need to collect from Great Western Road.
GL Communities offers two types of food voucher;
- A Family Food Voucher worth £40.
- A single voucher worth £25.
