How can I help? Donate food

Food banks across the city are finding it difficult to source some essential food items at this time. Bulk buying is used where possible, but sourcing certain items is challenging.

This is where you can make a real difference and be a direct help. If you would like to donate, please add a few items to your basket and drop it off at The Arches and we will make sure that it goes to those who need it most. Please see below for the list or download a PDF version here.

How can I help? The list

Please shop responsibly from this list and only add one or two of each item.

Food items: Tinned meat or fish / Meals in a tin (curry, stew, pie, vegetarian) / Tinned vegetables and fruit / Rice pudding / Sponge pudding / Pasta, rice or instant mashed potatoes / Pasta sauce / Cereal / UHT milk / Chunky soup / Baked beans / Tinned spaghetti / Tea bags / Instant coffee / Sugar / Biscuits / Fruit juice

Toiletries: Roll-on deodorant / Toilet paper / Shower gel / Shampoo / Toothbrushes / Toothpaste / Sanitary towels / Tampons

Household: Washing up liquid / Anti-bacterial surface spray / J-cloths / Liquid laundry detergent / Toilet cleaner / Hand wash
