Bingley Foodbank is a community resource serving local people facing crises in their lives. It has been initiated by the Methodist Airedale Circuit in Partnership with many local churches, voluntary groups and local organisations. It opened its doors in Bingley Arts Centre on 29 November 2013.
Donations can be made at
Bingley Little Theatre (Bingley Arts Centre) on Tuesdays and Fridays between 10.30am and 11.45am.
There are boxes for donations at both SS Mary & Monica's church,
Cottingley and Sacred Heart church on Nethermoor View in Bingley.
Food Bank shortages 4 January 2022:
Sugar (small ½ kg bags)
We have plenty of:
Packets of Pasta
We have reasonable stocks of most items at present, but always glad of more. We don’t routinely put toiletries in the bags, but clients often appreciate toothpaste and other toiletries.
Thanks to everybody for their continued support.
New volunteers are always welcome. In particular, the Tuesday session would benefit from a couple of extra bodies to assist! The more volunteers there are, the less often each volunteer gets put on the rota. If you are interested in helping out please call down to Bingley Little Theatre (Bingley Arts Centre) on a Tuesday between 10am and 11.45am and speak to Barbara Walls.

During these 8 weeks we fed 77 households feeding 224 individuals. Approximately
half are adults and half children - quite a number
of the ‘children’ are teenagers and have an ‘adult’ bag.
