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.

Dear students:
If you wish to donate food at the end of term, please take food items to one of the supermarket collection points listed below. Please note that we can only use the following:
– tinned and packeted items
– long life items such as milk and fruit juice
– items well within their ’use by date’
We cannot use:
– items close to their ‘use by date’
– items where the packaging is damaged
– items that have been opened

We always welcome donations and promise to use them to provide help to people in crisis. Occasionally we send food to other nearby foodbanks to support their work particularly if they experience shortages. This ensures that your donations are always used to benefit people in Bath and other local communities.

If you are planning a large collection of food, please contact us beforehand, so that we can discuss the best timing of this, and advise you of any particular needs. This allows us to tailor the generosity of those giving with the needs at the time.

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

 

FOOD ITEMS WE DO NOT ACCEPT

Opened/Used or Out Of Date items, Fresh/frozen food, Baby formula milk, Medications and Alcohol.
