After the unfortunate closure to this service during lockdown, we are happy to announce we are now able to re-open for parcel collection!

To align with the government’s advice in regard to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the need for social distancing, we have had to make some important changes.

Please find further guidelines on how to safely access the Foodbank service below.


Student Foodbank is a scheme that provides short-term support to students facing financial difficulties by providing them with a basic food parcel to last three days.

We believe no student should go hungry, which is why any Northumbria student can use our service. If you have any queries about using the foodbank, please email
