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 2019/20 financial year 152,569.9kg of food and toiletries 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 15063 three-day emergency food parcels to local people between April 2019 and March 2020. Of this number, 5847 (38%) went to households with children aged predominately 0-11 years. 

Our shopping list on the right shows the food items that we need and don’t need right now. We also accept good quality carrier bags.
Please note we can only give out food that is non-perishable, sealed and in date.

There are three ways to get food donations to us:

  • If you are happy to drop off food donations, please bring them to our Warehouse – address and opening times below.
