Donate food

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 currently need.

If you are happy to drop off food donations, please see the table below for our food collection point locations:

Please note that Tesco, Crewe and Sainsburys, Nantwich have permanent collection points for food bought in store.

Please not that Chapel Mews is NOT a drop-off point, and Brine Leas School is no longer accepting donations (other than for Drop-off and Go collections, as advertised on our Facebook page).

Other organisations may be organising drop-off days or weeks; please see our Facebook page for details.

Please note that we cannot accept any damaged or out of date food. Also, in accordance with UNICEF guidelines, we cannot give out baby formula, so are unable to accept this.

We always welcome donations, and promise to use them to provide help to people in crisis. Occasionally we send food to other nearby foodbanks or charities to support their work, particularly if they experience shortages. This ensures that your donations go to help people wherever they are in the UK .

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