Donate food

Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support. We are in need of more donations than ever due to the current financial crisis and the fact that we are experiencing more clients in need, therefore, we are having to purchase food items in order to fill our empty shelves.

We update the list of required items every week in order to ensure we receive the products which are most needed for our clients.

We thank you for your support.

Over 90% of the food distributed by foodbanks in The Trussell Trust network is donated by the public – that is 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 list on the right shows the food items that we need right now.

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

Please do not put items in the Asda and Tesco collection points if they were not purchased from those stores, unless placed in separate labelled bags.

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.
