Emergency Food Poverty Scheme

The Emergency Food Poverty Scheme aims to support local-not-for-profit groups delivering services to those experiencing hardship in the Borough. 

This scheme is in addition to, and is not designed to replace, the funding pledged by the Government on 9 November 2020 to meet the costs of free school meal provision from December 2020 - December 2021. 

For individuals and families who require help in providing food parcels, please contact visit the Citizens Advice Surrey Heath website or call them on 01276 417900.

The scheme is currently open until 31 March 2022.  However this is discretionary and may be withdrawn at any time.
