Donate food

Our foodbank 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 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.

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

Location Times Where to deliver
Gurnos Christian Centre 9.00am – 12.00 Rear car park

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.

If you shop at Tesco Extra Merthyr Tydfil, Tesco Aberdare or Asda Dowlais Top you can also place food items in the in-store Permanent Collection Boxes (PCB). However, these boxes are for use of store shoppers only.
