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 items that we need most urgently.  I can’t believe we need to add rice this week as we have never run short of it before.  We are very low on stock generally at the moment except for the couple of items shown below the shopping list (pasta and baked beans).

If you are happy to drop off food donations, please bring them to our foodbank centre when we are open.

Tesco collection points are intended for food that has been purchased by in-store shoppers only.  Any food that has been purchased in a different store and brought into a Tesco store for collection should be sealed by the Donor and clearly labelled as having been purchased elsewhere.

We always welcome donations and promise to use them to provide help to people in crisis. Occasionally, rather than waste food if we have a big surplus, we send food to other nearby foodbanks or similar organisations to support their work particularly if they experience shortages. This ensures your donations go to help people nearby.

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