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.
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.
Our Sponsorship Package Leaflet gives details of the levels of support your company can provide. Benefits include prominent placement on our home page, and your company’s logo on our digital newsletter. Please download the leaflet here and choose the level of sponsorship your business would like to offer. 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.
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.

Definitive InvestAndrew Westcott:
"Being a Luton based business, we feel it is important to give back to the community we are part of. Day by day more and more families are struggling to make ends meet and feed themselves. We decided to partner with the Luton Foodbank in a humble effort to contribute to the need facing those families going to bed hungry; it would be socially irresponsible for a cooperation such as ours to go to bed on a full stomach whilst sections of our community go to bed hungry. We encourage local companies and individuals to share with us in this collective responsibility and support the invaluable work that the Luton Foodbank is doing for our community."
Local radio station Inspire FM is a major supporter, providing a media platform for us to raise awareness and promote our charity campaigns, such as "Feed a child". Inspire FM was also instrumental in fundraising for a new van.
