How to donate food

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

What do we need?

July 26th 2022

Please note that the food donated in the boxes at Lidl and Aldi does not come to Bingley Foodbank. There is a collection point for Bingley Foodbank at the Coop in the shopping centre.

Thank you to those of you who follow the web site for any shortages. We have been busy the last few weeks and the shortages now are listed below:

Thank 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, and pasta. We now have room for tinned soup again.

We cannot use catering size packs of food as these are too big even for the larger families.

We have plenty room of the shelves for:

Tinned Soup

Meat/fish paste

Tinned lentils, kidney beans chick peas etc

Tinned Spaghetti/macaroni cheese

Less urgent at the moment:

Tinned fruit

Tinned carrots and tinned peas

Instant noodles and other pack where added hot water reconstitutes

Long grain Rice

Cereals – we have enough porridge at the moment



We are also pleased to be able to give out toiletries (toothpaste/soap/shampoo) and toilet rolls

We have plenty of:

  • pasta
  • baked beans
