We make free food parcels that we distribute to homeless and vulnerable people via charities, schools and recognised organisations already working with people in need. We source food - non perishable only - from schools and small-medium businesses. We try to avoid otherwise edible food from going into landfill.

Bradford Metropolitan Food Bank is a small registered charity, entirely run by volunteers, is non-denominational and is Bradford's original Food Bank, operating since 2004.

Individuals in need of food can check the new Bradford Foodbanks website at for up-to-date information about your nearest food bank and access to emergency food.

Organisations that would like to get food bags from us for people in need - please fill in the contact form on our website We will send you our process and ask you to complete a registration form.
