Donate food

Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.

Donating Food

Over 90% of the food distributed by Greenwich Foodbank 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 on the right shows the food items that we need right now.


Temporary Donation Point

During the Covid-19 emergency a number of the donation points below have closed or are not able to open.  One of our volunteers has set up a temporary collection in front of their house, 49 Banchory Road SE3 8SL.  When the box is full they will take donations to the warehouse so that they can be distributed.

Central Charlton Residents Association have also set up something similar.

Our friends, St Michael’s Blackheath are still able to collect for Greenwich Foodbank during the crisis.  If you are able to contribute please drop into their church hall, 1 Pond Road, London SE3 9JL on Tuesday’s 10-11am and Thursday’s 2-3pm.

These initiatives are helping us to continue to serve those in crisis.
