HOW TO DONATE

Help Us Make a Difference

Donate Food

We welcome donations of food. Food needs to be in date, unopened and in good condition, please. Long life food is best: it keeps well, and often requires little preparation and cooking. Many of our clients have limited cooking and storage facilities, or may have little fuel to spare.

We are happy to accept donations of fresh fruit and vegetables if they are in good condition.

We always need:
• Tinned meat, fish, halal and meat-free alternatives
• Tinned potatoes and other vegetables, fruit, rice pudding, custard
• Breakfast cereals, UHT milk, jam
• Cooking sauces
• Microwaveable rice, noodle and pasta pots
• Drinks such as tea bags, instant coffee, fruit squashes, other soft drinks
• Biscuits and sweet treats for children of all ages
• Toiletries including toilet roll, soap/shower and bath, deodorants

Please note we shall not need dried pasta for the foreseeable future.

We do not give out food or drink that contains alcohol.

Donations can be dropped off during opening hours. We also have collection boxes in the Batley and Cleckheaton area in banks and building societies, and Knights Pharmacy in Birstall and some GPs. Sainsbury’s Dewsbury, Morrison’s Heckmondwike and Asda Dewsbury also collect for us. When the libraries and other public places like the town halls re-open, we hope they can collect for us again. If you can host a collecting box for us, please get in touch.

If you need a donation to be collected, please call us on 01924 474 999.
