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.

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
Tesco Extra, Kingston Park 06.00 – midnight
Waitrose, Ponteland 08.00 – 20.00
Sainsbury’s, Throckley 08.00 – 21.00

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 they are in the North East.

Please hand in any food donations to the Benwell Foodbank Centre (off Whickham view opposite Tyne View Dentists) Monday to Friday 9:30am-4pm.

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