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.

At our centre we have a shop, with fresh diary, fruit, veg and meat daily, this allows our clients to choose their own items.

Our shopping list on the right shows the food items that we need right now.

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. 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 they are.

We are a partner with the Creggan Community Fridge at Creggan Country Park, we send near end of date items to ensure no food wastage.  More details on this service can be found on their facebook page.

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