National Food Service Bristol is the Bristol branch of the NFS Network. We’re building the National Food Service from the ground up.
We want to create opportunities for friends and neighbors to cook and eat together. We support groups that provide free and low cost food to anyone who needs it.
During the Covid-19 crisis we have adapted our model and are running an emergency food delivery service throughout the whole of Bristol.
Support our Covid-19 emergency food delivery project.

Covid-19 Emergency Food Provision Testimonials
National Food Service have been a massive help to Creative Youth Network staff and service users. During Covid-19 young people have been reporting a shortage in food supplies and due to self-isolating, not being able to access shops and food banks. We have also found that many of our service users are unable to continue in existing work and find new ways of working which has resulted in a lack of finances to spend on food shops. National Food Service have been incredibly responsive and provided our service users with weeks’ worth of nutritious meals and veg boxes. Another huge benefit of NFS is the fact that they don’t only provide food for certain age ranges and circumstances but provide food for everyone of all ages and situations. There really was no other option for some of our service users so NFS has really been a life saver during this difficult and uncertain time

The initiative is a great one, response is so quick, vulnerable people’s needs are being met.
Absolutely amazing! The deliveries have been life-saving. Without the service we’d have literally been starving.
Absolutely brilliant service.
