Who can come?

The Bamberger Tafel supports people who are in a difficult economic situation with the giving out of food. For registering as a customer at the Tafel, there are some requirements to fulfill:

  • You receive Hartz IV (ALG II), Wohngeldzuschuss, Sozialhilfeleistungen or Grundsicherung
  • You have a residence certificate for asylum seekers (except refugees in the first reception – there is full catering.)
  • You receive a low pension
  • You have a low salary or no salary

Please bring your valid communications/papers and an official document (identity card, passport) at our office time (tuesday, thursday, friday 09:30 am – 01:00pm) for you new registration. Without a registration with us, you can’t get any foods.


Procedure of giving out

At the day of giving out between 09:00 am and 01:00pm you can buy a number for 2.50 Euros. This number determines the order of the people coming in at the giving out at 01:15 pm. Of course you can come to the giving out without a number (approximately 02:00 pm) and then pay the 2.50 Euros. An employee regulates the inlet. Please wait in front of the building until you are called. You have to bring along thermobags and bags for the foods. No thermobag = no cooled products!
