Donate food

Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support. We receive donations mainly from individuals, schools, churches and other organisations.

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. Please note that our Tesco and Asda In Store Collection points are intended for food items that have been purchased in-store. Any food that has been purchased in a different store and brought to the collection point should be sealed and  clearly labelled as having been purchased elsewhere.

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 wherever in the UK they are.

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