Donate food

We rely on food donations to feed local people in crisis. From pasta to puddings, please give in-date non-perishable food.

At the moment we urgently need more TINNED SOUP and INSTANT MASH as well as tinned fruit, tinned vegetables and long-life milk.

We are also short of tinned spaghettitinned meat and fish.

and sponge puddings are also especially welcome.
