Please note we cannot accept any damaged or out of date food. Also in line 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 your donations go to help people wherever in the UK they are.
Please contact us if you have any questions about donating food.
