About our foodbank

Here is an introduction to our project.

First opened in April 2013, Borehamwood Foodbank is The Elstree and Borehamwood Mayoral Charity of the Year, 2022/23. In the past year, our foodbank supported over 9,739 people across the area with emergency food parcels, over a third of which were children.

Open twice a week, we are working hard to provide emergency food. Last year 54% of the people visiting the foodbank were working, often full time and could not make ends meet being on zero hour contracts or part of the gig economy.

Additionally, we also host school lunch events where families can enjoy a healthy meal with the opportunity to learn new recipes and even help cook their own lunch!

Our foodbank is a project founded by local churches and community groups, working together towards stopping hunger in our area.
