Donate food

Food, toiletries and cleaning products we need & where to take your donations. For Christmas items, please see our Christmas Appeal page.

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.

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 in the UK they are.

Our shopping list on the right shows the food items that our foodbank needs right now.  Items with stars are the items most urgently needed.  For more detailed information about our current needs direct to your mobile / tablet / PC, download the Foodbank App and select Bradford North as your foodbank.
