CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

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.

GETTING HELP
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.

GIVING HELP
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!

OPENING TIMES

Watford Foodbank will be closed during the bank holiday (Monday 31st May 2021). If you are in need of a food parcel, please arrange this with the team by Saturday 29th May, or alternatively we will reopen on Tuesday 1st June.

We will still gratefully be accepting donations via the supermarket collection points during their opening hours, or financial donations online here.

 

DONATE WHILST YOU SHOP

We’d love you to support Watford Foodbank as you shop with Amazon! You’ll just need to select us as your chosen charity and shop through smile.amazon.co.uk or on the Amazon app. Amazon then will donate a small percentage of your purchase to us, at no extra cost to you! This is a really simple way to support the work of the foodbank.

 

HOW THE FOODBANK WORKS

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.
