Donate food

Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.

Please note that Tesco collection points are intended for food that has been purchased in the store by in-store shoppers.  Any food that has been purchased in a different store and brought into Tesco should be in a sealed bag or box and labelled as non-Tesco.  Thank you.

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.

See our shopping list on the right for food items we accept or download our handy Shopping List to keep  in your bag.

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 in our area who find themselves in need.

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