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 contact the Citizens Advice Bureau on freephone 0800 061 4808.
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 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. 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.
We are now funding a freephone line at Watford Citizens Advice for clients who need a foodbank voucher. The number is 0800 061 4808. Calls will be picked up Monday – Friday, 10am – midday. If you call outside of these hours, please leave a message and a member of the team will get back to you!
