Donate food

Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.

Over 90% of the food distributed by foodbanks in The Trussell Trust network is donated by the public – that’s why your food donations are absolutely vital to our ability to give everyone referred to us a balanced and nutritious three day supply of food.

Our shopping list on the right shows the food items that we need right now.

Sanitary Items: Many people have commented after viewing the powerful film ‘I Daniel Blake’ on BBC last week. We are pleased to inform you that through generous donations we already have an abundance of sanitary towels and tampons. If you wish to donate to Bedford Foodbank our current needs are: shower gel, deodorant(male+female), shampoo, household cleaning sprays, washing up liquid and laundry washing tablets. Many thanks for your generosity.
