How to donate food

Volunteers at Waitrose Sidmouth

Food can be left at the Unitarian Chapel (see Contact Us for a map) on Friday afternoons between 12.00 and 15.00. During December 2017 we are also open for donations on Mondays before Christmas between 09:00 and 10:00. Alternatively, use any of the premises below; there will be a box labelled ‘Sid Valley Food Bank’ near the entrance. We have no fridge or freezer, so donate only food that can be stored at room temperature and is within their ‘use by’ date, please. Our Shopping List gives a good idea of what we need.
