Food banks and food vouchers

If you're finding it hard to buy food every week, there are lots of places across Torfaen that can help. 

You can apply for a food voucher or food parcel from Bron Afon (you’ll have to fill in an income and expenditure form with a member of our Support Team first).  You can then collect your parcel or voucher from us.
