The Food Bank uses your monetary (cash) donations to buy perishable food items such as margarine, fruit, potatoes and other fresh vegetables.
Your much appreciated donations of food and hygiene products are a large component of the items we provide to needy clients. We cannot, for safety reasons, accept canned and packaged goods whose best before date has been exceeded. We are often asked what kinds of food items we need on a weekly basis. The following list is not exhaustive, but it can be a useful guide when you are deciding what to donate.
