Donating food, clothing and other items

While, all donations you gives us are very much appreciated the items below are currently most useful to us.

We always appreciate Sainsburys Food Vouchers so that we can buy fresh ingredients on a daily basis

Food donations

Every day Drop-In is open, we provide a meal created from donated food. Here is our wish list for 2020 – this changes regularly so please watch this space:

  • Coffee, sugar
  • Salad Cream
  • Multipack crisps 
  • Boxed desserts that can be frozen, e.g. Apple Crumble 
  • Tinned desserts, e.g. Treacle Pudding

    Fresh food donations are really appreciated. Some people offer pre-prepared meals which we can warm up in our oven and hob if necessary. Our fridge and storage space is limited so please contact us beforehand to arrange fresh food deliveries to avoid waste. These additional items can come in useful:

    • Fruit and vegetables
    • Ready-prepared meals
    • Eggs
    • Milk

    Please note all food donations must be within their Use By Date.

    Non-food items 

    • Washing-up Liquid
    • Cleaning Products
    • Small torches – ideally windup
    • Can openers
    • Watertight and clean one or two man tents – used and new

    We cannot take duvets or pillows, but one of our partners, Furnistore will welcome those. See our Find Help page for their details.
