Donate food

Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.

Our most needed items:

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.

PLEASE MAKE SURE all donations are in date.
Small packets are easier for us to distribute.
Our shopping list on the right shows the food items that we need right now.
We also accept good quality carrier bags.
Please note we can only give out food that is non-perishable, sealed and in date.

Please check this list of our core items for other restrictions on what we can and cannot accept.


There are three ways to get food donations to us:
  1. Drop off food donations to a Foodbank convenient to you – address and opening times on “Locations” tab.
  2. Online supermarket food shop deliveries to our Warehouse:
    –     email [email protected] for address and hours
    –     please only order long life and non-perishable items (nothing refrigerated or frozen please)
    –      please email us the date and time we should expect the delivery to help our warehouse team
