Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support. In the last year, we gave out 25 tonnes of food. We are dependent on donations from the public and we are so thankful for each and every tin, jar and packet!
You can give physical food, order from our online Wishlist, or donate money so we can buy exactly what we need. Everything is welcome!
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.
Our shopping list shows the food items that we need right now – please be aware we can’t take any fresh food.
