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.

Our shopping list on the right shows the food items that we need right now.

You might like to use the BanktheFood app, which will send you a helpful ‘ping’ with a reminder of the food banks’ needs when you are shopping in your local supermarket. More details here

Alternatively you can drop off food at our Burngreave foodbank building on Spital Hill on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 10.30 – 4.00. If coming by car you will find it easier to park at the back of the building on Spital Lane.

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.
