Donate Food

Telford Foodbank aims to provide a parcel that contains a minimum of three days of nutritionally balanced, non-perishable tinned and dried foods that have been donated by the public.

A typical food parcel contains enough provisions to make three main meals, three lunches and three breakfasts.

We are always in need of the following items:

  • Tinned meat (minced beef, pork, chicken corned beef etc.)
  • Tinned Fish (tuna, salmon) 
  • Tinned meals (stews, meatballs, curry, chilli etc.)
  • Tinned vegetables (potatoes, peas, carrots, sweetcorn)
  • Long-life Milk (semi-skimmed / full-fat preferred)
  • Pasta Sauces & pasta bakes
  • Pasta Pots and Noodle Pots 

We also provide essential non-food items including toiletries and hygiene products, helping people in crisis to maintain dignity.

  • Shower Gel & Soap
  • Shampoo
  • Deodorants
  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrushes
  • Disposable Razors
  • Shaving Foam
  • Feminine Care Products

We welcome any dietary-specific foods, vegetarian meals, gluten-free and free-from etc.

Where to take your donation

If you’re able to get to our Sutton Hill hub between 9:30 and 5:00 Monday to Friday to bring things across to us, that’s great!

If you can’t get there, no problem, our Donation Points are the next best thing.

We have donation points in many locations across the borough, at supermarkets including, ASDA town centre, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons Lawley & Wellington, local convenience stores such as the CO-OP stores in Stirchley, Priorslee and Ironbridgemand One-Stop Shops in Shifnal and Wellington. You can also drop off at several community hubs across the borough including, Donnington and Citizens Advice in Wellington. 

From June 2021 our friends at AF C Telford United are also accepting donations for us – check the story out here.

Our relationship with these outlets is strong and we’d love you to say thank you to them. The reason they help us is that they respond to customer requests. They’re customer-led. If their customers ask for it, they listen.

Please encourage other stores supermarkets in our Borough to help us too.

Next time you go shopping, pop a comment in their customer services book, thank them or ask them to support Telford Crisis Support.
