The Trussell Trust has worked with nutritionists to design a food parcels that contains at least three days worth of food to enable our clients to provide healthy, balanced meals for themselves and their families.

The food will be pre-packed into boxes for you to take home, or you can take it home in bags if you prefer.

 

(We are totally reliant on food donations from the public, so some items may not always be available.)

Our Foodbank provides three days of nutritionally balanced, non-perishable food.

Fresh Food

 

On top of the non-perishable food parcel you will receive, we will have a number of fresh items available. These differ from week to week, but generally include fresh vegetables, fruit, bread and cake products. Some items will be close to or just past their BBE date, but we quality check all our fresh produce.

 

Other items available on request

 

We often have cat and dog food available.

 

If you have a young child or baby, we will often have nappies, wipes, baby food and sometimes baby milk.

 

We may have sugar on request.

 

Our volunteers will check if you have any additional requirements when they talk to you on arrival at the Foodbank.

 

Dietary requirements

 

If you have any special dietary needs, for example gluten free, no pork, vegetarian or you have any food allergies you will be able to talk these through with the volunteer who is looking after you when you arrive at the Foodbank.
