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 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:

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.

Deliveries to Foodbank and Clothes Store can be made during the following times

Mon-Thurs 9.30am-4pm and Fri 9.30am-12.30pm

Please note that from January 2018, no food deliveries can be taken on Thursdays

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