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 shows the food items that we need right now.

We also always need Paper Carrier Bags (the type with handles – must be clean & sturdy) and Plastic Carrier Bags (the ‘For Life’ type – must be clean) so we can deliver our food packages.

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.

We are unable to accept products that:

  • Contain alcohol or medication
  • Baby milk formula
  • Are out of date
  • Have been opened or part used

>>We are currently not accepting incontinence pads<<

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