This is a time of year where many individuals, community groups, educational institutions and workplaces organise donation drives for Foodbanks. It’s fantastic that so many people want to lend support.
To help focus donations on what would be most effective, Feeding Liverpool have consulted with some of the largest Foodbanks in our network.
What we’ve heard is that whilst festive treats are great at this time of year, please keep donating the staples. High demand during winter means we need these donations to keep foodbank cupboards stocked with all the essentials.
- UHT Milk
- Tinned Tomatoes
- Tinned/Instant Soups
- Tinned Meat/Fish
- Tinned rice pudding
- Instant Coffee

Feeding Britain is supporting a network of 348 affordable food clubs – encompassing pantries, larders, and social supermarkets – across its 87 regional and local partnerships. These settings make food and other essentials more affordable and accessible to their 75,000 member households, helping people to stretch their
budgets further while preventing at least some of the need for food banks.
