Watford Foodbank is seeing an increased demand for food packages, and we are so grateful for all who have given donations of food as well as money – both help enable us to support the people of Watford, especially during this tricky time.
For those requiring food parcels, we are currently still operating as usual: Monday – Saturday, 10am – 1pm. If you are unable to get a foodbank voucher referral during this time or you are unable to come and collect food due to self-isolating, please call us on 01923 804435 and we can explore other options.
We’re still 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 are able to, please give us a call on 01923 804435 before you set off so that we know you’re on your way and can vouch for your genuine need to travel should you be stopped by the police during this time of restricted travel and social distancing.
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!
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.
