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.

We always welcome donations and promise to use them to provide help to people in crisis. Occasionally we send overstock to other nearby foodbanks to support their work  if they are experiencing shortages, just like they do for us.  All  your donations go to help people in need in Northern Ireland.

Please contact us if you have any questions about donating food.
