Bow Foodbank

An independent foodbank serving the local community

Thanks to all who have supported Bow Foodbank in so many ways during the COVID 19 crisis and especially the hard-working volunteers who have enabled us to continue offering food support on Mondays and to develop a home delivery service to meet the special demands of the lockdown period.

Important notice about the end of home deliveries

As the lockdown restrictions are relaxing and fewer people are required to self-isolate for long periods, we will soon be bringing that home delivery service to an end.  The last deliveries will be between Tuesday 4th and Friday 7th August 2020.

The regular Bow Foodbank sessions will still take place on Mondays from 08:30 am to 12:30 pm, and if you have been receiving a delivery at home, you are welcome to continue collecting food bags in person or to send someone to collect for you at our new location in the Bromley-By-Bow Centre.   You will not need to bring any paperwork or to have a referral.  Please get in touch with us to discuss these changes, especially if you may have difficulty with a move to using our Monday service.

Bow Foodbank is now relocated to the Bromley-by-Bow Community Centre, St Leonard’s Street, E3 3BT. Entrance through the park on St.Leonards Street.

The Bromley-by-Bow Centre is a 5 minute walk from Our Lady and St Catherine’s Church. It is close to Bromley-by-Bow tube station and Bow Church DLR station. The D8 and 488 bus also stop outside the BBBC.
