Batley Food Bank is a registered charity number 1157520. We are open 5 days a week Monday to Friday, currently 1-3 pm, providing food for people in need in Batley and the surrounding area.
We operate out of the Town Hall Annexe on Brunswick Street, Batley. It looks unprepossessing but inside lots of great work is done helping local people to feed themselves and their families.
We have helped many thousands of people since we were established in 2013 and continue to do so, thanks to the generosity of local people, organisations, community groups and businesses who donate both food and money to us. Food donations are great, but we can’t always specify exactly what we need and how much. That’s where money donations come in. We have good relationships with local and regional suppliers who can often supply to us on favourable terms.
We operate on a referral basis – people need to get an official agency to tell us that they need food. This helps us to give out our 7 day food parcels as fairly as possible.
We encourage our clients to come in and collect their food wherever possible. At the moment we can offer a very limited delivery service which is reserved for people least able to collect themselves.
