Donate food

Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.

As the coronavirus pandemic unfolds in the UK, our main priority is ensuring the safety of everyone who comes to our food bank –whether it’s someone needing help, someone volunteering their time, or someone making a donation. Things are changing quickly, so we’ll keep this page updated regularly with information about what’s happening at the Rickmansworth Foodbank and how people can access support and help us be there for people in crisis.

We’re still supporting people with emergency food at Rickmansworth Foodbank and will do for as long as is possible. In the meantime, we need you, our local community, to continue donating vital food supplies.  Your support is vital at this time, so if you’re considering donating, please see our shopping list on the right which shows the food items that we need right now. You can also download a pdf version here: Shopping List

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.

If you are happy to drop off food donations, please see the table below for our food collection point locations. If people need to isolate, please contact by phone (07716856892) to arrange.

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 in the UK they are.
