Donate food

Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.




Over 90% of the food distributed by foodbanks across the 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.

Only food & items purchased in Waitrose should be placed in the Waitrose collection basket, opposite the basket check-out tills.


Likewise, only food & items purchased in the East Grinstead store of Sainsbury’s should be placed in the orange Sainsbury’s collection box, near the self-scanning exit check-out tills.

 We always welcome donations and always use them to provide help to people in crisis. Very 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.

Particular thanks go to those who continue to donate items at our regular collection points throughout the town.

Thank you also to customers of Sainsbury’s and Waitrose  stores who both continue to kindly regularly donate to us.



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