About this app

Bank The Food aims to relieve hunger in the UK by connecting consumers with their local supermarkets and food banks, helping to ensure food banks always have plentiful, adequate, and befitting supplies to support their reach areas and communities
We have utilised modern technology to notify users of the exact food items their foodbank needs as they walk into the various drop off points such as supermarkets.
This keeps the foodbanks needs in front of mind and the EXACT type of needs.

Did you know the most foodbanks in the UK do not have enough food and also too many of one item and not enough of another?

We together can solve this problem.

Join the fight to relieve hunger today.

Great idea but needs a bit of work to make it more user friendly. Biggest issue is with finding a drop off point. There is a map but it's tiny and you don't seem to be able to bring that up on its own without the list. Not all the drop off points on the list are on the map, so the map is pointless anyway. The list is in no order, so really hard to find the points near me. And there's no info about drop off times - I know some are only open a few hours a week.

Thanks for taking the time to feedback. The drop off points should be listed in 'distance' order, so nearest to you first. It would be really useful if you got in contact at info@bankthefood.org and gave us more info. Many Thanks.

Not all foodbanks are listed. My foodbank was not listed (only the head office in the city was relevant to me) & it was only the foodbank that can add itself to the list, I couldn't inform the app to tell them my foodbank was missing. Hull, St Martin's church, North Road HU4 6DD. Open only on Tuesdays.

Sorry that your foodbank was missing. We do try and list all of them and have the vast majority on the app. Please let us know the foodbank that was missing here and we'll try and make contact.

Kept crashing after trying a dozen times and in the end I couldn't get past the point when local branches were listed. Disappointing really but the idea is great.
