Food Support In Three Rivers

On this page you can find details on the range of food and shopping support available in Three Rivers.


Foodbanks give three days of emergency food to local people in crisis and enable communities to help each other. In Three Rivers we have the Rickmansworth Foodbank and Watford Foodbank.

You need a foodbank voucher to receive a parcel. Do not go directly to the foodbank.

Foodbank works with a number of different agencies, such as Citizens Advice, children’s centres and health visitors. If they feel you are struggling to put food on the table, they will issue you with a foodbank voucher. To get a foodbank voucher contact one of the below:
