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.

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:

Warehouse for donations

into Foodbank only

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.

Donated items that are not deemed suitable for distribution to clients may be used to raise funds or may be passed on to other charitable organisations in Medway. In addition, surplus stock may also be passed on to organisations supporting those in need in the Medway area.

If you would like more information on this then please use the ‘contact us’ section to make your request, giving your full name, contact telephone number and postal address for our response. Thank You.
