Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.
Over 90% of the food we use to support families and individuals is donated by the general public – this is why your food donations are absolutely vital in giving us the ability to provide everyone referred to us with a balanced and nutritious three day supply of food.
Our shopping list shows the food items that we typically use, and which we need right now in order to complete the balanced 3-day emergency food parcels that we offer.
If you want to drop off food donations but can’t get to the Lighthouse Project where the foodbank is based then please see the list below for some of our additional food collection points dotted around the community:
