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.   Only food purchased at a particular supermarket can be left at that store; for example on food items purchased at Tesco can be left in the collection box in Tesco;  Sainbury’s purchases in the Sainbury’s box and so on.  Thank you.

If you are happy to drop off food donations, please see the table below for our food collection point locations.

Please do not drop off food when a distribution centre is open, as this causes problems when we are dealing with clients.  Thank you.

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