what can i donate?

Your donations enable us to feed more people. Please be assured that we use our resources with care, considering both the generosity of our donors, and the needs of our clients. We check all the evidence and information before giving out food and we keep confidential records. We can and do refuse parcels if we do not have sufficient evidence.
