What's In a Food Parcel?
Our foodbank provides approximately 3 days of nutritionally balanced, non-perishable food.
We ensure food parcels contain sufficient nutrition for healthy, balanced meals for individuals and families.
A TYPICAL FOOD PARCEL INCLUDES:
- Breakfast cereal
- Pasta sauce
- Tinned beans
- Tinned spaghetti
- Tinned tomatoes
- Tinned meat
- Tinned fish
- Tinned vegetables
- Tinned fruit
- Tea and coffee
- Custard or rice pudding
We often have fresh bread. We also have other food donated such as jam, squash, gravy, sweets and jelly. We usually have a supply of pet food.
We are often able to help with toiletries, toilet rolls, feminine hygiene products, nappies & baby food, cleaning and laundry items.
Our foodbank can usually adapt your food parcel to meet your dietary needs, for example, gluten free, vegetarian or suitable for making with hot water from a kettle. When you arrive at the foodbank centre, a volunteer will chat to you about any special dietary requirements you may have.
