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. During 2018/19 financial year 134,106.9kgs of emergency food was donated. We always welcome donations and promise to use them to provide help to people in crisis. Occasionally we send food to other nearby foodbanks and organisations to support their work particularly if they experience shortages.
We distributed 13,248 three-day emergency food parcels to local people between April 2018 and March 2019. Of this number, 5041 (38%) went to households with children aged predominately 0-11 years. 48% went to single people.
Our shopping list on the right shows the food items that we need right now. Please note we can only give out food that is non-perishable, sealed and in date.
