Donate food

Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.

The quickest way to find out what Faversham Foodbank needs is to use the BanktheFood app on a smart phone.

Over 90% of the food distributed by foodbanks in The Trussell Trust network 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.

Please do not donate baby food or milk formula, we do not have a great demand for these items and to prevent it going out of date on our shelves we have a small fund available to buy them as needed.

If you are happy to drop off food donations, please see the table below for our food collection points locations:

Location of food donation point     Opening hours Comments
Tesco Supermarket, Crescent Road During store open hours  Front of store past the checkouts in-store purchases only

NB Tesco  collection points are intended for food that has been purchased in-store.  Any food that has been purchased in a different store and brought into the store’s collection points  should be sealed by the donor and clearly labelled as having been purchased elsewhere.

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.
