The Bradford Curry Project is run as a charity entirely supported my volunteers and receives no funding for resources or food. Many of the volunteers that work on the nights we open will provide the food as well (though this is not a necessity of taking part). We always appreciate help, and this can come in three forms:

Money – With no secure funding, we rely on the generosity of well wishers
Time – Join one of our teams and work on one night per month
Food – Contributions of food are always welcome


The Bradford Curry Project is run by unpaid volunteers. Please make your donation using the above DONATE button.

All proceeds go to the running of the service principally :

    •  Food
    •  Administration
    •  Rent
    •  Insurance
    •  Events

Time / Volunteering

If you have a spare a couple of hours a month why not come down and see what we do?  We’d love to see you. There are a variety of ways you can help, for example:

  • Cooking and serving food
  • Washing up and cleaning
  • Talking and listening to our clients
  • Contributing and collecting food

We cook plain, wholesome food for 50 to 100 people. Our cooks have a rota system, cooking on  a Saturday, once a month. Some cooks prepare the food at home, others cook in the kitchen where we are serving. We normally have around 10-12 volunteers helping per night – two cooks and others helping to serve, wash up and chat to clients.

Please note that we do undertake a vetting process for volunteers and that you may be required to undertake a CRB check. For more information about volunteering, please email us at


We depend on food donations from schools, churches, mosques and private individuals in order to keep serving our meals.
Non-perishable foods can be stored on our premises and are always in short supply.  At the moment we are particularly short of:

  • tinned meat
  • tinned fish
  • tinned vegetables
  • tea
  • coffee
  • sugar

Other food donations are also gratefully received.  For example one business kindly donates several trays of pies each month which we collect on the day and then heat in our kitchen.
