About our foodbank

Here is an introduction to our project.

Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income.

Bedford Foodbank’s volunteers work with referral partners to provide a minimum of three days emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis in our community.

Last year Trussell Trust foodbanks in the UK gave food over 1 million times to people experiencing food poverty.

The foodbank is committed to safeguarding the rights, well-being and safety of children and vulnerable adults who come into contact with the foodbank. Please click below to download our Safeguarding Policy.


The foodbank is committed to delivering a high standard of service to anyone who engages with our work. We believe that the best way to improve our service is by learning from the people who use it.  We welcome comments, compliments and complaints from clients, referral agencies, volunteers and anyone else we come into contact with in our work. These help us to see what we are doing well and where we can make improvements. Please click below to download our Complaints Procedure.
