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.

If you are happy to drop off food donations, please see the table below for our food collection point locations:

We always welcome donations and promise to use them to provide help to people in crisis. Occasionally we send surplus food to other nearby foodbanks to support their work particularly if they experience shortages, or to other charities serving those in similar need. 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.

* Supermarkets provide cashback donations to foodbanks based on the weight of food sold and collected in their stores. They therefore request that only food bought in-store is put in the collection points in the stores, unless it is sealed by the donor and labelled clearly as purchased elsewhere. Thank you for your understanding on this point.
