Thank you so much for checking this page before donating food. We update it regularly so you can see what's most needed at the moment.
Changes due to impact of coronavirus
From 30 March, our five centres across Wandsworth are closed, and we’re switching to home delivery only. This temporary measure means we can continue providing emergency food to local people, while keeping everyone as safe as possible.

What food do we need?
You can see the food we currently most need online at Bankuet, a social enterprise that’s helping people donate to food banks like ours. You can also visit ‘What’s in a Food Parcel?’ to see the food items we can accept.
