How to donate food

Over the last seven years, we have been grateful for the many donations made to the foodbank. Thank you!

What do we need?

November 23rd 2021

Due to the number of harvest donations from schools and churches our store cupboard is now well supplied and we have very few shortages. Thanks you to everyone who has made contributions. We are grateful that we can meet the needs of the families and individuals who come to the Foodbank. Again, thank you.

We are grateful for any tinned or packets of food but at the moment we still have plenty of baked beans, soup and pasta.

Shortages at the moment are:

meat/fish paste.

tinned potatoes

tinned spaghetti


Sugar – especially 1 lb bags. We now have plenty of soap and toothpaste thank you.

Tinned/pk Custard

Tinned Rice pudding

Sometimes our customers really appreciate disinfectant kitchen surface spray and washing up liquid. We often put a toilet roll in the packs too.

We have plenty of:

  • pasta
  • tinned soup
  • baked beans

Where do I donate?
