Our foodbank relies on your donations of food and finance and we are very grateful for your support!
We are short of non-food items such as toilet rolls, feminine deodorant, washing powder, shower gel and washing-up liquid. Essential supplies we all need.
About half of the food we need comes from our permanent collection points in the major supermarkets in Wokingham, in churches and from local companies who support us.
The remainder we collect at Harvest Festival and at our regular special collections at the supermarkets.
Your generosity means that families, adults and children, who cant afford to feed themselves do not go hungry.
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.
Our shopping list on the right shows the food items that we need right now.
