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. During 2018/19 financial year 134,106.9kgs of emergency food was donated. 

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.

If you are happy to drop off food donations, please bring them to our Warehouse. Alternatively please see the table below for other collection points across Cardiff
