What’s in a food parcel?

Our foodbank provides three days of nutritionally balanced, non-perishable food.

The Trussell Trust has worked with nutritionists to ensure food parcels contains sufficient nutrition for at least three days worth of healthy, balanced meals for individuals and families.

A typical food parcel includes:

  • Breakfast cereals
  • Tea or coffee
  • UHT milk
  • UHT fruit juice
  • Soup
  • Pasta or rice
  • Pasta sauce
  • Tinned meat, fish or vegetarian main meals
  • Tinned vegetables
  • Tinned baked beans, or pasta
  • Tinned fruit
  • Tinned rice pudding or custard
  • Biscuits
  • Snacks
  • Peanut Butter/Sandwich Paste

Dietary requirements

When you arrive at the foodbank centre, a volunteer will help you to select the food you would like from what we have that day.

We also often have some toiletries and household products to give as well, so please come with large shopping bags or a wheelie shopping trolley so you can get it all home!
