ReadiFood is a “by referral only” service (people cannot call us on their own behalf). We rely on you, the referrer, to assess whether there is genuine need.

We are not a drop-in Food Bank – we deliver to you or to your client directly if in the Greater Reading area. We do not issue vouchers.

Do not send clients to us – unless you have specifically agreed an arrangement with a staff member.

We will normally only provide up to 4 weekly deliveries if a client has zero income.

If they are in receipt of benefits and/or wages and struggling with general costs of living we can issue up to 2 weeks of parcels, which will be sent once we have assessed their need. We may be able to offer more parcels if the client has a specific emergency.

You can refer again and where really necessary discuss with us the long term needs of your client, such as a monthly top-up parcel.
