about US

Hi! Welcome to our little corner of the web.


We're Bethnal Green Food Bank, a non-referral food bank at home in the wonderful community of Bethnal Green and East London. We serve whoever comes to our doors. No questions asked. 

We open every Wednesday from 2-7PM and currently serve around 350 households every week. To be able to do this, we rely on a team of around 50 volunteers who pack, register, count, log, spread the word, order, distribute, deliver, collect and stock. Without them, there would be no food bank and we're grateful to each and every one of them for giving the community their time.

We would not be where we are today without the support of St Matthew's Church and its fabulous Reverend Erin. St Matthew's hosted the food bank for its first year. Since then, we've found a new home at Raine's Foundation School.

COVID-19 has changed the needs of our community drastically. We're seeing more  and more clients pass our gates. As we adapt to the 'new normal' we need your help. Keen to get involved? Hit the button down below.

Bethnal Green Foodbank operates out of Raine's Foundation School, Bethnal Green as part of The Bow Foodbank Ltd, a registered charity (Registered in England and Wales Charity Number 1162185. Company number 08852728. Registered office: 177 Bow Road, London, England, E3 2SG). and in co-operation with Bow Foodbank.
