We work with referral agents across the Barnsley area that can allocate food parcels to individuals in financial crisis. Citizens Advice, Housing Welfare Team, Social Workers, Schools, GP Surgeries, Family Support, Humankind and Romero Communities are just a handful of the referral agents you can contact for a food parcel.
