Donate food

Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.

The generosity of groups, churches, schools, supermarkets and individual donors is what helps us to deliver our vital service and you can be part of this by donating your food donations to the following collection points.

Our shopping list on the right shows the food items that we need right now.

We would also welcome donations of sanitary products, nappies, wipes, soap, washing-up-liquid, toilet rolls and soap powder.

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.

If you are happy to drop off food donations, please see the table below for our food collection point locations:

The generosity that you show through your donations is unwavering and we are so grateful, which is why we want every food donation to count.  However, we are governed by the Food Standards Agency which means  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).
