Rural Food Hub Network

The Rural Food Hub Network, funded by UKSPF, aims to supports residents living in our rural areas of Melton Mowbray with emergency food and other essential items.

This network operates by a voucher based system only – if you or someone you know is struggling due to financial hardship and require food/essential items, you can access this support by contacting The Community Support Hub.

A member of the team will contact you to assess your financial situation, and whether you are eligible for this support. Once assessed, and deemed eligible, you will be sent a voucher, either electronically or via post. You will also receive information relating to where your nearest food hub is.

We are currently operating in the following venues:
