Donate food

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, and we are incredibly low on stock so your donations are very much needed.

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. The vast majority of food is used locally in Hackney, however 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 or if you would like to set up a collection at your school, house of worship, community group or place of work.

*When dropping your donations off at these locations, could you please label them with your name/email address. We would love to keep in touch and say thank you!
