- We currently have large stocks of baked beans, cereals, pasta, pasta sauce, biscuits, rice, fish, soup, baby food and cereals, and we would ask if you could donate one of the items from our current list.
- Larger packs of items don’t fit in our parcels making it difficult for our clients to carry home, this is why we ask for small packets.

* Please note: We ask for small packs as larger packs do not fit in our boxes making it difficult for our clients to carry home we are also unable (for hygiene reasons) to split large size or catering packs.
We follow the standards set by the Food Standards Agency. We can only accept donations of unopened and undamaged goods that are still well within their “use by” date (no less than six months if possible). Items which do not meet these requirements cannot be used and your donation may be wasted.
We always welcome donations and promise to use them to provide help to people in crisis. Occasionally we send food to other nearby food banks to support their work particularly if they experience shortages. This ensures your donations go to help people wherever in the UK they are.
