Batley Food Bank is a registered Charity (number 1157520.) We collect food from the people and businesses and redistribute it to local people in need, providing enough food for the household for three meals a day for one week. We provide food bank access to anyone in need from Batley and the surrounding areas. Anyone referred to us in need will be welcomed and no-one in need will be turned away.
Who are we? We are community volunteers from all walks of life who have come together simply because we see the need.
How do we work? Food is provided via a referral system and the referral forms are held by social and support workers, benefit workers, churches, doctors, Jobcentres, etc. If you are a resident of Batley and the surrounding areas and you need access to the Food Bank you can get a referral from the following organisations:… Jobcentres, Sure Start Centres, KNH Housing Offices, Batley Drop-in, Kirklees Benefits Advice Service, homeless charities, other charities, some schools, doctor’s surgeries or you can ring Kirklees Local Welfare Provision on 01484 414782.
