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.

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.

This ensures your donations go to help people wherever in the UK they are.  We currently need all items of food donating, but in particular please see the items listed on the right ….
