Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support. Most of the food distributed by Dover 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.
s always - a big thank you to all who so generously continue to support local people who are in need via Dover Foodbank - that support really does make a difference to many people's lives, often beyond anything we can imagine.
From time to time people comment to us that it is difficult for them to donate because they always shop on-line. We would like to give a special Thank You to the kind person who, last week, so generously arranged for us to pick up a "click and collect" donation from a local supermarket - what a fantastic idea and such a wonderful donation, thank you. Is this something that you or a friend of yours would like to do? If it is why not, as and when appropriate, follow this kind person's example and contact Dover Foodbank first to arrange a suitable time slot; we'd love to hear from you. We think this is such a great idea do please share it with other people for whom this may be appropriate.
A big Thank you, too, to all who visited our stall at Dover Community Regatta and had a chat there with some of our volunteers - it was great to meet up and we really appreciate people's continued encouragement and support.
Our shopping list on the right shows the food items that we need right now.
