Donate food

Plymouth Foodbank is experiencing it's highest demand since we opened our doors 14 years ago, we are in need of all donations from soup to spuds!
Our Foodbank relies on your goodwill and support and we are incredibly grateful to everyone who gives via donations or financially.

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 shows the food items that we need right now.

It has never been so easy and fuss free to make a donation! This saves the hassle of making a trip to one of our collection points (above) or to our centre itself.


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.

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