Canned Food


shopping list

How can you help? One way is to help us to offer a balanced food parcel that contains different types of food. This list is updated here and on our Facebook page.

We really appreciate you donating from the list below as it avoids an excess of some foods and a shortage of others.

The Most Useful Foods

Please note that all food collected is non-perishable, long-life or tinned. Thanks for your help. ​

Because of your generous donations recently, we only have a few things on our 'most needed' list at the moment. Our store volunteers will continue to sort through recent donations and double check what's needed. Meanwhile, please check the green list below before donating food, and the red list at the end which tells you the food items that we have lots of (and do not need at the moment). Thank you so much!
