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.

We can only give out food that is in date, so please no out of date or very near its expiry date.

We are unable to accept baby formula milk  products

Our shopping list on the right shows the food items that we need right now.

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, as well as supporting other local projects such as breakfast clubs for children, or our own other food aid programmes that complement the foodbank parcels. 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.
