Give food

In line with Government instructions to stay at home, we do not expect people to risk their lives making a special trip to donate food. (But if you're in the supermarket* anyway, an item or two left at our drop-off point will be very welcome!) 

So the call of the hour is for donations of MONEY. Please help us ensure no-one goes hungry by donating at lutonfoodbank.org.uk/donate

Please check that the expiry date of your donated food is for more than two months.

 

Please remember that not only should donated food be well within date, it should also have been stored appropriately, because it's not possible for us to tell from the label whether it's been stored badly.

 

 * You can find a list of drop-off points at lutonfoodbank.org.uk/drop but please bear in mind that it could go out of date very quickly. We will strive to keep it up to date.

WHERE TO DONATE FOOD    WHAT FOOD IS NEEDED

Standing order
Regular donations, however small, help us tackle extreme poverty in Luton.

Every penny you donate will make a difference to those who are struggling to eat across the town.

If you are making a donation, please read the gift aid section below.

To donate to Luton Foodbank on a monthly basis, please contact us for a standing order form, or use Donate now and select Paypal, which allows monthly recurring donations.

Gift Aid

To make your donation go further, please complete the gift aid declaration form. (Charity number EW24901)

Gift Aid is a government scheme allowing charities to claim back tax on donations, meaning we get an extra 25p for each pound donated. For example, a £20 donation means we receive £25, at no extra cost to you. But we can only do this if you opt in.

Subheading: Gift Aid it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Business sponsorship

Join our growing list of Business Friends today!

Looking for a way to market your business while also supporting your community? We now have a range of attractive Sponsorship Packages, which offer benefits to both our clients and your business.

Benefits of sponsorship can include prominent placement on our home page, and your company’s logo on our digital newsletter. Help us to ensure that no one goes hungry in our town.

Thank you for your time and consideration. Without support from local businesses, Luton Foodbank would simply not be able to keep meeting the needs of Luton's most vulnerable people. We hope you will be willing to support us in our endeavour.

If you'd like more details, please use the form below. We hope to hear from you soon.

Would you like to help alleviate food poverty in the local community?

Can your business sponsor £1 a day?

You could help feed 10 families a year by donating as little as £365!

In 2016, Luton Foodbank gave out 7,565 food parcels—an increase of 25% on 2015.  Benefits-related issues and short term crises contribute to the financial strain individuals and families using the Foodbank are under.  There is no end in sight to this trend, and we have a long way to go to meet our aim of ensuring no one goes hungry in our town.
