Donate food

Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.

Over 90% of the food distributed by foodbanks in The Trussell Trust network is donated by the public – that’s why your food donations are absolutely vital to our ability to give everyone referred to us a balanced and nutritious three day supply of food.

Our shopping lists on the right shows the food items that we need urgently, those we have plenty of, and our full list of items.  Please note we cannot accept fresh food, only tins/packets/jars/boxes, and it MUST be within the ‘Use By’ date.

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

Please note – the Community Centre is not able to accept donations during the pandemic.

We always welcome donations and promise to use them to provide help to people in crisis. Occasionally we send food to other nearby foodbanks to support their work particularly if they experience shortages. This ensures your donations go to help people wherever in the UK they are.

Please contact us if you have any questions about donating food.
