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 would prefer not to receive donations of alcohol or bottled water, thank you.
If you are happy to drop off food donations, please see the table below for our food collection point locations.
Tesco has an arrangement with the Trussell Trust where they top up by 20% everything which is donated in their stores. Please note, the donation point is intended for in-store shoppers only. Please ensure that any food purchased elsewhere is sealed in a bag and clearly labelled as purchased elsewhere so that the top up can be calculated correctly.
Booths have started a new initiative, whereby customers can buy one of selected items and the store will pay for another one to be donated to the Foodbank. More details here.
During the current crisis, not all of the donation points listed will be open – please contact us if you need advice.
The warehouse will also be open to receive deliveries on:
Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 10am – 12 noon
or Friday from 9am – 11am.

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.
