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.

If you are happy to drop off food donations you may drop off at our main warehouse 121A Peckham High Street SE15 5SE.

Please see a list of participating supermarkets that have an in store collection point where you can drop off donations when shopping.

Please note the following if you donate food at a supermarket collection point:

  • Tesco and/or Asda PCPs (collection points) are intended for food that has been purchased in-store only.
  • If you wish to donate food in your local Tesco or Asda and you did not purchase it there, please seal and label the food as being purchased elsewhere.

We always welcome donations and promise to use them to provide help to people in crisis. When possible we send food to other nearby food programmes to support their work particularly if they experience shortages.  This ensures that your donations go to help people at a wherever in the UK they are.

Please contact us if you have any questions about donating food.
