Over 90% of the food distributed by food banks 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. Without your goodwill, our food banks would really struggle to operate.
Ways to donate food
1. Directly to your local food bank – find your nearest one here.
2. At collection points in supermarkets across the country.
3. By hosting a collection at your school, church or business for your local food bank.
Items to donate
We always welcome donations and promise to use them to provide help to adults and children in crisis.
Take a look at what’s in a food parcel to see what items to donate, and don’t forget that food banks also accept essential non-food items such as toiletries and hygiene products, helping people in crisis to maintain dignity and feel human again.
