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:

Please can we ask that you do not drop off food donations at the Christian Centre for the time being as there are still access restrictions in place.
If you are unable to drop off food at the supermarket donation points and or have a larger quantity of items to donate (i.e. a bag full or more), then please do contact us directly and we will advise on where and when they can be dropped off.
Thank you for your understanding at this time.

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.
