Bath Foodbank

Emergency Food Provision

Part of a national network of food banks seeded by the Trussell Trust, Bath Foodbank provides crisis food support of nutritionally balanced food and further support to local people who are referred to us.

Supporting People in Crisis

For people on low incomes, a sudden change in circumstances such as redundancy, benefit delay or even an unexpected bill, can mean going hungry. Bath Foodbank aims to support these people and ensure that everyone can access food when they need to.

All the food is kindly donated by the general public, businesses and organisations, and a team of volunteers help to deliver this service.

Give Help

We can’t do what we do without the support of our community.  Visit the Bath Foodbank website for more information on how to give help. You can help in many different ways: donate food and money, volunteer or, if you are a school, church or other organisation, you can partner with us.

Bank the Food App

A good way to donate food more effectively is to use the Bank the Food app.  You can download it to your phone or computer, register and choose Bath Foodbank.  We update it weekly with the most needed food items and then you can donate the food at a convenient grocery store.  Click HERE to see donation locations.
