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.

Please note that we are UNABLE to take fresh fruit or vegetables, anything frozen, or party produce.

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

There are also food donation points in Pensford Post Office, Chew Magna Coop, the Coop Store at Queens Road Keynsham, Tesco in Saltford and Saltford Hall (if open).

*Keynsham Tesco and Waitrose ask that when shoppers make donations that are not bought in their store but are donated in their drop box, that donors seal these in a carrier bag and label them as not bought in that store. This is because Tesco and Waitrose make extra financial donations to the foodbank based on the weight of donations bought and donated in their store.

We always welcome donations and promise to use them to provide help to people in crisis. Occasionally we send food to other nearby foodbanks and similar organisations helping people in food crisis, 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.
