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.

You can drop your donation in the collection basket at one of the following supermarkets:

  • ASDA
    • Small Heath
    • Parkgate (Shirley)
  • Waitrose
    • Hall Green
    • Solihull
  • Tesco
    • Hall Green
    • Monkspath (Solihull)
    • Yardley (Swan Centre)
    • Knowle
  • Sainsburys Marshall Lake (Shirley)
  • Tesco and/or Asda Permanent Collection Points (PCP) are intended for food that has been purchased in-stores shoppers only; any food that has been purchased in a different store and brought into the PCP store should be sealed by the donor and clearly labelled as having been purchased elsewhere.

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.
