Salford Foodbanks

Donate goods

Donate to your local foodbank or food club.

Following the latest 'stay alert' guidance there are still ways you can support your local food banks and food clubs while keeping yourself and others safe:

Via donation points

You can donate to local foodbanks via donation points in supermarkets. Only do this as part of your essential shopping trip and do not bulk purchase even if you are planning on donating the goods.

The main items food banks / food clubs / pantries and meal providers are in need of are:

Food: UHT milk, cereals, pasta, rice, canned items (baked beans, soup, vegetables, fruit, meat and fish)

Essentials: Nappies, bars of soap, household cleaning products, anti-bacterial wipes, toilet rolls, hand sanitiser, hand wash.

Donate money directly to foodbanks and food clubs

Many food banks and charities have online donation pages. You can provide invaluable support for these front line organisations by making a one-off or recurring donation so they are able to purchase essential provisions in these times of high demand.

If you are a local business or organisation

If you are a local business or organisation that can make a bulk donation of essential food or toiletries please let us know via this form.
