Food bank

Food bank

The food bank is an extra help for residents of Hilversum with a low income. You can get food for yourself and your family. The food bank collects food and distributes it among people who qualify for help. In Hilversum, you can go to ‘Bedrijfsgebouw Heelo’ at the Oosterengweg 44.

Please note! Do you live in the Hilversum Meent then go to food bank Naarden-Bussum!

How does it work?

You can visit the website of the food bank on this page to sign up. You will then be invited for an
introductory meeting. It is also possible that another organization will immediately register you for an
introductory meeting.

Rules for admission

If you have registered for the food package, you can pick up a package once a week, when visiting you will also be offered a cup of coffee or tea. You can get the food package weekly for 3 months. After three months, the food bank expects you to have received the right help to be self-reliant yourself.

We advise you:

  • To request the package together with your contact person from VWN.
