Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.
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 on the right shows the food items that we need right now.
Please note that we cannot take infant formula for babies under 6 months old.

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 wherever in the UK they are.
You can also donate at any of the churches where we hold our distribution centres.
Please contact us if you have any questions about donating food.
