When you do your shopping this week please keep in mind the Foodbank  helping people in times of crisis

The Foodbank provides local people with necessities, not luxuries. It allows people to collect the basic necessities they need to live.

This week saw the start of the long summer holidays and with it an increase in our numbers. As we have done in previous years we will be supporting families who would normally benefit from free school meals. This means an increase in the demand for ‘child friendly’ food. Whilst we aim to provide a nutritious food package it also nice to include snacks and treats.

It is not only children who like a sweet treat as many of our elderly clients ask for biscuits and chocolate. One has a particular liking for Jamie Dodgers🙂

Another thing worth mentioning is that if donating things like ketchup both small and large bottles would be appreciated. We do cater for many single people in addition to larger family units.

This  week we have fed in excess of 260 people and made over 100 home deliveries.

As previously mentioned we do have a very good stock of many of the basic items so if possible please donate only the items on the following list - 


Female deodorant 

Shaving foam

Cleaning products - bleach, anti bac sprays etc


Sugar - small bags if possible

Cooking sauces

Long life fruit juice

Tinned vegetables including sweetcorn

Ketchup/brown sauce 

Long life sponge puddings

Children’s treats - chocolate etc

Savoury snacks - crisps etc

Powdered milk

Washing powder/tablets/capsules/liquid - URGENT

Peanut butter - URGENT

Nappies - size 5 and above only please

The majority of supermarkets still have collection bins which we empty on a regular basis. Alternatively food can be dropped off at our warehouse in Ruxley Lane Ewell. We are open Monday to Friday 9am to 3pm for dropping donations , except Thursday when last time for donations is 2pm. Please note that we do not open on Bank Holidays.
