Help Us Make a Difference

Donate Food

Donated 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, razors and shave gel, sanitary towels and tampons

Please note we shall not need chick peas, kidney beans or larger bags (3kg) of dried pasta and rice for the foreseeable future.

Donations can be dropped off during opening hours. We have collection boxes in the Batley and Cleckheaton area in banks and building societies, Knights Pharmacy in Birstall, Austins Butcgers in Earlsheaton  and some GPs. Sainsbury’s Dewsbury collect for us. Batley Library is now open and has a collection box for donations. 

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