Goodbye Lockleaze…for now.

After a wonderful year running our Community Dining Club up in North Bristol we’re taking a rest while we consider our next steps. Watch this space.

If you need support with food or volunteering opportunities in Lockleaze get in touch and we can still help you out. Email us to bristol@nationalfoodservice.uk.

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.

We are currently looking for more voluntary directors to join our team. If you believe that bringing people together around food builds stronger communities then we want to hear from you.

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

Absolutely amazing! The deliveries have been life-saving. Without the service we’d have literally been starving.


Absolutely brilliant service.

Rob and Jackie

This is a life-saver. It means I don’t have to take the kids to the shops and put them in danger, as one of them has additional needs.


Service is outstanding, makes us feel like we are all in this together, food is great and the people delivering the food are so lovely – thank you


Denise ordered fresh meals for her son which she delivers along with Veg box for her and her family to share.

Amazing service, if I was able I would volunteer to drive for you.
