We have an abundance of Baked Beans and Pasta so please, no more at the moment—we will let you know when we need it again.


We are always pleased to accept monetary donations if you prefer, as it costs approximately £40,000 a year to run our organisations four centres, van, warehouse and office. We have a wonderful lady who is marvellous at finding funding streams for us but these are becoming increasingly harder to access as a lot of funders remits only cover new initiatives.

Thank you for your support of Braintree Area Foodbank Ltd. We could not run our centres without you.

Please Note: We are grateful for your donations to the Braintree Area Foodbank. However, please note that we can only accept donations of freshly-bought, unopened and undamaged goods which are still well within their “use by” date (no less than 6 months). We cannot use items which do not meet these requirements, and the donation is wasted. Please ensure you are using our latest list.
