We rely heavily on food donations from schools, businesses and individuals, so hugely appreciate anything that can be done to contribute. We do have limited capacity to collect donations however, so if you have food donations for the food bank, have a look at the below information before getting in touch with us about it. Ideally you will be able to deliver the food to us directly, but if you require a collection can also be arranged.
All donations are gratefully received, however there are a couple of other things you can do that will help us sort the items as quickly and efficiently as possible:
If you would like to carry out a collection at your place of work, you can download and print off a shopping list to provide guidance on the things we need. We have containers that could be collected/delivered to you to store the food in, but having your own means to do so may allow things to move a bit quicker. Please email us if you would like to hold a collection, or carry one out and then let us know when you have food for collection/delivery!
If you cannot deliver in these times, please arrange a different time via the above email, and follow points 3 and 4 on the map below, or arrange to meet a volunteer/staff member at the storage unit.
If you cannot deliver during these times, we also have collection points set up at the following locations: Sainsbury’s Paddington Station, W2 1HB. Open 6.00am to 11.59pm Mon-Sat 6:00am-11.00pm Sunday Sainsbury’s Superstore, Ladbroke Grove, W10 5AA. Open 7.00am to 11.59pm Mon-Sat 11.00am-5.00pm Sunday Waitrose, Porchester Rd, Bayswater, W2 6ES. Open 7.30am to 10.00pm Mon- Sat 11.00am-5.00pm Sunday
