Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.
Over 90% of the food distributed by foodbanks who are part of The Trussell Trust network, such as ourselves, 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 need right now to maintain that balance.
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 food collection points dotted around the community:
