About our foodbank

Here is an introduction to our project.

Welcome to the Chelmsford Foodbank ………

 Chelmsford Foodbank is a project of the Oasis Church, Chelmsford, with volunteers drawn from  many churches and individuals from across the region. 

 We have Food Distribution Centres open in different parts of Chelmsford, making it possible for you to collect food on any weekday, the details of which are under “Locations” on this web site.  You are welcome to come to any of them irrespective of where you obtained your voucher.


You will find a friendly reception at each Centre where you will be valued in a non-judgemental way.  Someone will be there to receive you and sit with you as others sort out your food donation which will be packed into ordinary plastic bags.  You could help us a lot if you could bring some of your own bags.  We try to have some toiletries available for you as well.   It is important that you obtain a voucher before coming to one of our food distribution centres, and please note that each voucher must be redeemed within 3 days of you obtaining it.


For those donating non-perishable food items, there are collection points all around the city and a shopping lists showing our immediate needs each month is shown on this web site under “give help” and then, “donate food”.   Thank you for your generosity.
