Foodbank distribution in Northern Ireland

Foodbanks are an increasingly useful resource for many in Northern Ireland. They provide a valuable service to communities and are continually helping to feed those in need. An interactive mapping application has been developed which provides the location and contact details of all currently operational foodbanks, as of December 2020.

Please note that, while many foodbanks in Northern Ireland are supported by the Trussell Trust (a GB-based umbrella charity), a significant number are managed by local community groups and churches. The interactive map contains the details of both.

In order to access some foodbanks it may be necessary to first obtain a referral from a local advice agency.

Please click on the image below to access the interactive map:

Users who may be aware of foodbanks that do not feature in the map, or of information in need of updating, please get in touch.
