Following the fantastic response from staff during Nutrition and Hydration Week 2019, during which we collectively donated more than 1,000 meal parcels to our local foodbanks, we have now set up permanent foodbank donation points in each of our boroughs in partnership with Trussell Trust.
The food collected through the donation points will be collected by our local Trussell Trust foodbanks to be sorted into meal parcels . The parcels provide three days of nutritionally-balanced food for people in our communities and typically include cereal, soup, pasta, rice, tinned tomatoes, tinned vegetables, tinned meat, tea, coffee and fruit.You can view details of your nearest Trust foodbank donation point in the table below. Here, you can also view an up-to-date list of items urgently needed by your local foodbank to help you when making your donation.
You can drop-off items to your nearest foodbank donation points between 9am and 5pm from Monday to Friday. If you are planning to drop off items outside these hours, you are best checking with your donation point contact first, to make sure the building will be open (see donation points below).
If you need support from a foodbank, visit:www.trusselltrust.org/get-help. To get help from a foodbank, you will need to be referred with a voucher, which can be issued by a number of local community organisations or your GP. If you're not sure, contact your local foodbank directly and they will be able to advise you.
