I need help

Is it difficult for you to buy enough food to put a healthy meal on the table every day of the month?

The food bank is here to help you. Anybody is welcome. We do not care where you are from, what your religion is or for what reason you need our help.

You can simply come every Tuesday or Thursday between 11.30 and 12.30 o’clock for an informal conversation. You do not need to be referred by a doctor or social service.

Our adres is Willem Barentszstraat 37, 2315 TZ Leiden.

Please bring the following with you:

  • A valid ID (passport, ID card or drivers licence)
  • Two large shopping bags (you will always receive a welcome package)
  • Our registration form (download here). It is in Dutch only, but maybe you can find somebody to help you fill it in? It will make it easier for us to evaluate your situation.

If you have questions or, for whatever reason, can’t make it on Tuesdays or Thursdays, or you simply prefer to have a chat on the phone first, you can call us at +31(0)6 18 34 84 81.
