What food do we need?

We welcome gifts of tinned or dried food for our emergency food boxes.

Owing to safety and storage restrictions, food must be within its recommended “sell by” or “consume by” date. The tins or packaging should not be damaged.

We love donations large or small, but unfortunately limited resources means that we cannot collect donations unless they are in bulk.

We ask people to take their food donation to their nearest Foodbank.
