Donate To the foodbank

Our foodbank relies on the amazing generosity of you, our community.
We and need your support more than ever.

Overall we are giving out much more than we’re receiving. 1 item, costing as little as 50p, will make a difference to local people in crisis in your town.

Most of the food & toiletries we give out is donated by the public and is absolutely vital to our ability to give everyone referred to us a balanced and nutritious three day supply of food. (Please scroll down to find our ‘most wanted’ list of items we are short of)


We are grateful and appreciative of every of every item of food or toiletries we get, whether you give 1 item or a trolley full.  If you think donating a single item wont do much please know  it really will. If everyone reading this donated one item it would feed an awful lot of people, who would otherwise go hungry due to a crisis in their life

Our shopping list shows the items that we are short of and need right now.

If you are happy to buy an extra item or two with your shopping please drop in the baskets in the supermarket you buy them, so we benefit from a very generous top up from that store. If you do donate items, not bought in a particular Asda or Tesco, it is important that you wrap them in bags and mark them as not bought in store. It’s also easy to donate food and toiletries by calling at any of our foodbank sessions, where our very friendly volunteers will happily collect them from you. foodbank Locations

If you would like to help out at any of our supermarket collections, when they restart, for a minimum of 2 hours please get in touch

Without your amazing generosity we would not be able to do what we do so both we, and our clients, really do appreciate every last item we get as we know its given with thought and a desire to help people in crisis.

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 of items we have plenty of(and they return the favour if/when they can, meaning all your donations will impact your community). This ensures your donations go to help people that need it.

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

All data collected is kept in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018.
