What’s in an emergency parcel?

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

A typical food parcel includes:

  • Breakfast cereals
  • Soup
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Pasta sauce
  • Tinned beans
  • Tinned meat
  • Tinned vegetables
  • Tinned fruit
  • Tea or coffee
  • Sugar
  • Biscuits
  • Snacks
  • Fresh fruit and veg
  • Bread
  • Toiletries
  • Household Cleaning and Laundry Detergent
  • Pet Food

    Dietary requirements

    Our foodbank can usually adapt your food parcel to meet your dietary needs, for example, gluten free, halal or vegetarian. When you arrive at the foodbank centre, and when we call to arrange a delivery, a volunteer will chat to you about any special dietary requirements you may have.
