Thank you so much for the support you have shown Watford Foodbank, during such a difficult time for so many. We are operating as usual and our warehouse continues to open Monday – Saturday, 10am – 1pm.
For those requiring food parcels, we are operating as usual: Monday – Saturday, 10am – 1pm. If you are struggling to get a foodbank voucher referral or to collect a food parcel, please call us on 01923 804435 and we can explore other options.
We’re gratefully accepting food donations – the easiest way to get food to us is to pop it in one of the collection points at the local supermarkets in Watford. We currently have points in Asda, Sainsbury’s and Tesco Extra. You can see a list of our urgently needed items here.
Alternatively, you can still drop food off at our warehouse (WD24 4YH) between 10am and 1pm, Monday – Saturday.
If you’re able to support us financially, please follow the link to make a donation. As many people are currently isolating, your generous financial gifts will help us with things such as the running costs of delivering food packages to those in need. Thank you for your support!
For some families this winter, it’s a choice between eating or heating. If you receive a Winter Fuel Payment from the government, and you can manage without some or all of it, then we’d love if you could consider a donation to us so that we can help families avoid the daily choice of whether to eat or to heat.
If you’d like to, you can donate here.
Watford Foodbank is here to help individuals and families in crisis by providing free emergency food as well as support until the appropriate agencies are in a position to assist. Tinned and dried food is collected from the public at supermarkets, churches, schools and other local groups and “banked” in a warehouse. Food is then given to people in crisis as a result of referrals from registered care professionals, such as Citizens Advice Bureau.
