Bradford Metropolitan Food Bank

Charity description

Bradford Metropolitan Food Bank logo
Bradford Metropolitan Food Bank is Bradford's oldest and biggest food bank, serving the whole of Bradford Metropolitan Distrcit. Our main aim is to help individuals and families who are in crisis, by providing free emergency food until appropriate professional agencies are in a position to assist.

Bradford Metropolitan Food Bank is run entirely by volunteers, who are fully committed to ensuring that people in need of help in the Bradford Metropolitan District receive free food, regardless of ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, or background. We receive donations of non-perishable food items from a wide range of organisations, groups and individuals, which we sort and pack into food bags, which in turn are distributed to families and individuals in need via a variety of support agencies such as social services, youth projects, housing organisations, advice projects, and community centres.

We estimate that the value of the food in each bag totals £15 and at present we are distributing in excess of 1,000 food parcels per month to professional agencies to give to their clients who are in crisis. We are only able to maintain this high level of provision and nutritional balance by buying staple food items such as long life milk, breakfast cereal, pasta and peanut butter. This is why financial donations are so important to us and why they make such a difference to the health and well being of the people who receive our food bags.

Thank you for your support!
