How can you help? One way is to help us to offer a balanced food parcel that contains different types of food. This list is updated here and on our Facebook page.
Due to your generosity over the Christmas and New Year period, we have NO urgent need for food. You may wish to wait until we appeal for food before you donate.
We really appreciate you donating from the list below as it avoids an excess of some foods and a shortage of others.
Please note: Unfortunately, Jubilee Foodbank cannot accept perishable foods such as bread or homemade foods such as jam.
