Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support and we always appreciate your donations of food.
At the moment stocks are low, following a Summer of high demand, and currently we have shortages of Tinned Fruit, Tinned Meat, Tinned Spaghetti, UHT Milk, Long Life Fruit Juice, Jam, Instant Coffee, Baked Beans, Soup, Pasta and Tinned Veg, and Tea Bags.
If you are able help with any of these items, it will enable us to continue to help those most in need in our area.
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. We have a shopping list of standard items that go in our food parcels.
Our list on the right shows the food items that we need right now, but please check with us before donating any large quantity of food.

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 food clubs in Salford, to support their work particularly if they experience shortages. This ensures your donations go to help people wherever in the Salford area they may be.
