Our foodbank provides three days of nutritionally balanced, non-perishable food.
The Trussell Trust has worked with nutritionists to ensure food parcels contains sufficient nutrition for at least three days worth of healthy, balanced meals for individuals and families.
A typical food parcel includes:
- Breakfast cereals
- UHT milk
- Fruit juice
- Pasta sauce
- Tinned beans
- Tinned pulses – lentils, kidney beans
- Tinned meat – e.g. pies, curries, stews and corned beef
- Tinned vegetables – e.g. carrots, sweetcorn and peas
- Tinned fruit
- Tea or coffee
- Feminine hygiene products
Where possible we also provide essential toiletries, baby essentials and pet food.
Our foodbank can usually adapt your food parcel to meet your dietary needs, for example, gluten free, halal or vegetarian. When you arrive at the foodbank centre, a volunteer will chat to you about any special dietary requirements you may have.
