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.

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

*Tesco and Asda’s permanent donation points are intended for food that has been purchased in-store. If you wish to donate food that has been purchased in a different store, please make sure that these items are sealed in a bag and clearly labelled as having been purchased elsewhere.

**We are open with a team of volunteers to receive donations on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Outside of these hours it is best to contact us first to check one of our team is available.

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 in the local area.

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