Thanks so much for checking this page before donating food. We update it regularly so you can see what's most needed right now.
Until September 2021, we’re delivering emergency food supplies to the homes of people referred to us in severe hardship. Our five food bank centres are closed until then, and so we’re asking people not to donate food to our centres at the moment (except for St Mark’s, Battersea Rise).
However you can still donate to help local people who’ve been pulled into hardship, and we couldn’t do what we do without the generosity of local people like you. You can:
- Give a financial donation, which we’ll continue to use where the need is greatest as we support local people. For instance,at the moment, we’re giving supermarket vouchers to every individual and family referred to us in hardship, alongside emergency food and toiletries. This is so that people can choose and buy additional items they need, including fresh food, fruit and veg.
- Give food online via Bankuet. Your gift, specified for Wandsworth Foodbank, will enable us to order exactly the food we need for people, when we need it – and Bankuet will deliver it directly to us. You can also add Gift Aid to maximise your donation, if you’re able to.
- Donate at Wandsworth Foodbank collection points below. Please check our most needed list (on right) and please only donate items that are in-date and unopened, as otherwise we’re not able to use them. Asda collection points are for in-store shoppers only, as they kindly offer a top-up payment based on items donated there. Thanks.
