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.  We have a shopping list of standard items that go in our food parcels which can be downloaded.

Our shopping list on the right shows the food items that we need right now and there is a copy of our standard shopping list below.

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

It is usually possible to donate items to our Mocha Parade foodbank premises from 9am – 5pm on Mon, Tues, Thurs or Fri (Wed is closed). However, please  contact us beforehand to ensure that someone is available to receive your donation.

We always welcome donations and promise to use them to provide help to people in crisis. Occasionally we send food to other nearby foodbanks 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 or if you would like any printed copies of our shopping list.
