Donate food

Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.

Over 90% of the food donated to Waterside 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.

If you are happy to drop off food donations, there are numerous food collection points along the Waterside.  You may drop off your donations at Cornerstone URC Church in Hythe, St. Andrews Church at Dibden Purlieu, Jubilee Hall at Fawley, Sainsbury’s store in Blackfield, or at the foodbank itself.  These have limited opening times so please see the table below for our food collection point locations which are open for longer periods.

We always welcome donations and promise to use them to provide help to people in crisis. Occasionally we send food to other nearby foodbanks to support their work particularly if they experience shortages. This ensures your donations go to help people wherever in the UK they are.

Please contact us if you have any questions about donating food.
