The local food bank needs you, do you have some of the items they desperately need? Maybe you fancy volunteering your time at the charity or you you can offer a donation to their fund? Check out the list and see if you can help.
The food bank relies on your goodwill and support. 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.
The shopping list below shows the food items they need right now, others are what they are low on.
If you are happy to drop off food donations, please see the table below for food collection point locations:
|LOCATION OF FOOD DONATION POINT||OPENING HOURS||COMMENTS|
|Baths Hall, Doncaster Road, Scunthorpe||Varied||front of house near exits|

If you own a local business then why not partner with the charity instead of wasting food you may not need or that is close to sell by. All the details can be found on their website. https://scunthorpe.foodbank.org.uk/give-help/
Scunthorpe foodbank works with over 50 referring agencies to put emergency food supplies into the hands of those in crisis.
Operating out of three distribution centres, the foodbank provides a three day supply of food to those referred to us. When clients visit our centres they are offered light refreshments, a listening ear and an opportunity to be prayed for by our team of volunteers.
