We are making it easier for you to donate food to Harlow Foodbank

In partnership with local supermarkets we have introduced ‘Shop & Drop’.

You can do your shop and then drop your donated food off at your local store.  The stores have permanent Harlow Foodbank customer collection points.

Please check your local store for opening and closing times and also check out our website on a regular basis to see what food shortages we are having.

Supermarket Collections Days

Look out for our special supermarket collection days.

Perhaps we will see you there!

You can also donate at local churches

Many of the churches in Harlow and the surrounding area will also accept your food donations.
