I had this exact problem just a few weeks ago.  The Latex Companion said
that \verbatim could be used inside an \environment, so I did the
following:

\documentclass{article}
\newenvironment{Footnote}{\footnote\bgroup}{\egroup}
\begin{document}
This is a test%
\begin{Footnote}%
\begin{verbatim}
This is a test
\end{verbatim}
\end{Footnote}
\end{document}

What I had inside the verbatim was more complicated but it worked too.
