Donate food

Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.

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 shows the food items that we need right now.

If you are happy to drop off food donations, please see the table below for our food collection point locations:

Tesco, Tavistock Road, Callington, PL17 7RD

The permanent collection point within Tesco is intended for use by ‘in-store shoppers only’ and we continue to accept donations from other stores.  However, we request that all donations not purchased from Callington Tesco be sealed and labeled as being purchased elsewhere.

We always welcome donations and promise to use them to provide help to people in crisis. Occasionally we send food to other nearby foodbanks to support their work particularly if they experience shortages. This ensures your donations go to help people wherever in the UK they are.

Please contact us if you have any questions about donating food.
