The Wild Goose serves around 100,000 free hot meals every year, and helps hundreds of people into emergency accommodation.
The LITE course (Life-Skills and Initial Training for Employment) aims to build confidence and develop the potential of people who have been long-term under-employed.
The East Bristol Foodbank provides food parcels to people who have been referred by front-line care professionals such as doctors and social workers.
The charity's most recent project, The Spring Of Hope Ladies' Night Shelter, provides eight emergency beds in a safe place for women who may otherwise have nowhere to go.
Alan Goddard, drop-in centre manager, said: "We are delighted with the award and that it is something positive for us and our 270 volunteers, as well as the Stapleton Road community."
