Aside from financial donations, we also take physical food donations. 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 pick-up can also be arranged.
What you can do when making a food donation
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:
- Make sure the item is before its use by date and write it on the side of the item if it is hard to see.
- Leave a note detailing how many items are in the donation.
Organising a collection
If you would like to carry out a collection at your school/place of work/place of worship or community group, 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:
Waitrose, Porchester Road, W2 6ES
Sainsburys, Sheldon Square, W2 6EZ
Sainsburys, Paddington Station, W2 1HB
If you can't drop-off your donation
