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.

The shopping list on the right shows the food items that Thurrock foodbank currently needs. The list below shows the items that we already have plenty of. It really helps us if you can donate what we most need.

If you are happy to drop off food donations, please see the table below for our food collection point locations. As a result of the COVID- 19 epidemic the opening times shown below may be different, but if the store etc. is open donations can be made. Alternatively, you can bring food directly to our warehouse at 2-4 Chase Road, Corringham on Mondays, 10.00-15.00, or Wednesdays, 10.00-15.00.

We always welcome donations and promise to use them to provide help to people in crisis. Occasionally we send food to other nearby foodbanks and other charities 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.
