The Hereford Food Bank is an all-volunteer operation and 100% of donations of both food and funds go toward fulfilling our mission to help those in need within the Hereford Zone. Due to confidentiality, our volunteers must be over 18, unless they are just packing bags or organizing shelves. 

Hard times can fall on us all, but your neighbors at the Hereford Food Bank strive to provide a small safety net when you are in need. 

 

OUR SERVICES:

The Hereford Food Bank provides the following free services for residents of the Hereford Zone*: 

  •  A bag of groceries per family per week containing ingredients for at least 3 full days of meals including eggs and fresh vegetables (as available)  [larger families get 2 or more bags]. 
  •  Detergent and hygiene items on a monthly basis or as needed. 
  •  Heating OR Housing assistance once per year for clients – a copy of the bill is required. 
  •  Referrals to appropriate social services and government agencies. 
  •  Special Holiday Feast bags at Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter 

There are no income limits or restrictions. If you need our services for a month or for a year, we are here for you. Our goal is to keep families together during hard times, feed them with food and hope, and show them compassion while maintaining their dignity.
