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 (please note supermarket donation points are for in-store shoppers only)

*Other donations can be left at Tesco but MUST NOT be left unless they are clearly labelled in sealed bags to show they are not bought directly from the Tesco store.

If you are happy to drop off food donations, please see the table below for our food collection point locations:

Location of food donation point     Opening hours Comments
Tesco Extra Ashby De La Zouch (in store shoppers only)* 0800 – 22.00  front of store near exits
Thringstone, Whitwick, Hugglescote Co-op foodstore 0900- 1900 Near tills
Coalville Foodbank – New Life Church 10.00 – 12.30 Tuesdays and Fridays

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.
