Donate food

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.

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.

If you happen to be shopping in Tesco Whitfield on November 21st, 22nd or 23rd (Thursday / Friday / Saturday) look out for some of our volunteers there and come over and have a chat - we'll be pleased to see you.

Our shopping list on the right shows the food items that we need right now.

Sometimes we also request donations of personal hygiene items, this is to restore and maintain a client’s dignity.

If you are happy to donate food items which have been purchased in-store, the following supermarkets have collection boxes:
