Community Hub – Food Donations

We still need donations of food, toiletries and household products for us to distribute to people in need. There is a list of the things we need most at the bottom of this page.

We cannot accept donations of clothing, toys, or any other items. 

You can bring donations between 10am-4pm Monday-Friday. Please do not leave any donations outside the Centre when we are closed.

Please remember to follow handwashing and distancing advice.

We can make best use of your donation if you donate:

  • things that are on the list below (if you’ve got anything else to donate, please call us first to check if we can use it);
  • things that are within their use-by and best-before dates;
  • unopened and unused packets;
  • small packets, instead of large ones;
  • a few different things, instead of a few packets of the same thing;
  • If donating soap, shampoo etc. ones that are meant for everyone, not specifically for men or women.

Thank you for all your generous donations. 

We update this page regularly, so please check in to see what we need, or get automatic email updates by going to our homepage and entering your email address in the “Subscribe” box.

If you’d like to make a financial donation, please go to our Donate Now! page.
