Donate food

Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.

Over 90% of the food distributed by the West End Foodbank 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 most right now.

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 contact us if you have any questions about donating food.
