Donate food – During Covid Pandemic

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 list on the right shows the food items that we need right now

People can purchase these items at the following stores and place them in the collection bin at the store:

Please don’t put other items in these bins – rather bring them to one of our outlets when we are there. Items need to be in date and unopened.

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.

We can take cleaned fresh fruit and vegetables at our outlets when they are open also.

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