How to donate food

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

What do we need?

Please note that at present – because of your generosity – we have plenty of some items but if you would like to make a donation we would be grateful for anything listed below PLEASE DO NOT BRING ANY DRIED PASTA OR TINS OF SOUP AT THE MOMENT AS WE HAVE MORE THAN ENOUGH AND STORAGE BECOMES A PROBLEM.

If you have any spare strong bags for us to put that food it that would be good too.

  • Coffee
  • Jam

  • tinned baked beans with sausage
  • tinned meat
  • custard (tinned or packet)
