Organisations working with vulnerable people make contact with us to request food for the people they know who need it
We can arrange food parcels for individuals (packed in a sturdy large carrier bag), or for families (packed in a small box)
We arrange for the organisation to collect the food from us (whenever possible; occasionally we can deliver)
We do not wish to have contact with those in need - it is not our intention to assess need, and we depend on the skill, commitment and ongoing support from the professional carers whose job it is to support the vulnerable. We make sure they can do this by supplying the food to keep them in contact with their clients and to help them overcome short term problems
If possible, we will arrange for donors to drop off items that they have collected.
With bulk donations we can arrange collection, if necessary.
We encourage faith and other groups to keep one of our Bradford Metropolitan Food Bank collection boxes at their meeting place to encourage a regular steady flow of donations.
