Donate food

We are continuing to experience high demand. Many thanks to so many of you who have made contact during this difficult time and for your donations. Please keep donating!...

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  a balanced, nutritious three day supply of food and basic toiletries to all who are referred here.

Our shopping list on the right shows the items that we urgently need.  Note we cannot accept infant formula milk, alcohol or foods containing alcohol.

If you are happy to drop off food donations, please see the table below for our food collection point locations:

We always welcome donations and promise to use them to provide help to people in crisis. Very occasionally we may send food to other nearby foodbanks to support their work if they experience shortages. This ensures your donations go to help people wherever in the UK they are.

If you want to donate food directly please bring it to the South London Warehouse,  St Margaret the Queen Church, Barcombe Avenue SW2 3NH Monday to Friday 9am to 2.30pm. If you have a large donation which you cannot bring in, ring us on 07597 030452 to arrange collection.

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