How to donate items

Sid Valley Food Bank chairman Ian Skinner.

Food can be left at the Unitarian Chapel; see Contact Us for a map and opening times. Alternatively, (except for fresh food) use any of the premises below; there will be a box labelled ‘Sid Valley Food Bank’ near the entrance. For health & safety reasons, donate only food that is within their ‘use by’ date and in their original sealed packaging please.

Fresh food can be left only at the Unitarian Chapel on Fridays – it may have ‘gone off’ if left at other points earlier in the week.

Our Facebook page gives a list of we need, and additional drop-off points for special items.
