    Hi,
    Im not aware of any scope membership card for discount food. 
    Have you ever had a benefits check to see if you’re entitled to any benefits? If you haven’t then it maybe a good idea to speak to an advice agency near you. This way you can tell them all your details and they will do a full benefits check for you. Start here https://advicelocal.uk/
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hi @Milkybar thanks for joining the community!

    I'm afraid Scope doesn't have a membership card like the one you describe, but we do have lots of information on ways to get support with food and essentials, particularly during the pandemic, which you might find helpful. 

    You could also take a look at Turn2Us, they have a benefit calculator you can use to see if you can apply for any benefits for some extra financial support.

    If you have any further questions, or need any help, let us know, we're here to support you :)
