This busy city centre foodbank serves the needs of a very deprived community as Bradford is ranked the fifth most income deprived local authority in England with 29% of children living below the poverty line. Last year the foodbank provided 127,809 meals to 14,201 local people.
Bradford residents and businesses can donate any size Easter Egg at its Market Street store.

Bradford’s generosity has meant we have already received over 40 donations and will be collecting in store right up until April 3rd.”
