What’s in a food parcel?

Our foodbank provides three days of nutritionally balanced, non-perishable food.

The Trussell Trust has worked with nutritionists to ensure food parcels contain sufficient nutrition for at least three days worth of healthy, balanced meals for individuals and families.

A typical food parcel includes:

  • Breakfast cereals
  • Soup
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Pasta sauce
  • Tinned beans
  • Tinned meat
  • Tinned vegetables
  • Tinned fruit
  • Tea or coffee
  • Biscuits
  • Snacks

Dietary requirements:

Our foodbank can usually adapt your food parcel to meet your dietary needs, for example vegetarian. When you arrive at the foodbank centre, a volunteer will chat to you about any special dietary requirements you may have.


More than Food

In addition to food, we also provides basic toiletries such as shampoo, shower gel, toilet roll, razors and shaving foam as well as baby wipes and nappies.

We will also ask you if you have any pets and then provides pet food accordingly.
