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.

We will continue to support our community during the coronavirus outbreak. So please keep donating food: your donation is needed now more than ever. We are anticipating a significant increase in users as more people are unable to work.

If you are self-isolating, you can make a financial donation online instead.

Please follow this link.

We want to say thank you to everyone who is continuing to donate food and money to enable us to help people in food crisis. The fact that people are still considering how to support our foodbank during this time is a credit to the community.


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

Alternatively please telephone 07716 325599 or email [email protected] if you would like to drop off your donation at our store.

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