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 list on the right shows the food items that we need right now.  Please note that we are not able to use food that is past the use by/best before date, so please only donate food that is within date.

Christmas 2018 Donations

As we approach Christmas we know that some people wish to donate Christmas related items.  We are delighted to receive and distribute such items.  However to ensure that these are distributed before Christmas and to avoid possible wastage, we would be grateful if these could be donated as soon as possible, preferably by Friday 16th November.

In previous years we have been fortunate to benefit from larger donations where businesses and other organisations have collected food for us from their staff/members.  If at all possible we would prefer such donations to be delivered to us by 14th December.  This would allow our storeroom volunteers to sort and store donations before they finish for Christmas as they will not be working during Christmas week.

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.
