As the crisis situation around Coronavirus develops, we are refocusing the charity around our food clubs, food supply and distribution, including managing donations from the public and distributing to homes for people who are on benefits or no income.
With this in mind, we have put together a priority list of items which we are currently in great need of:
Medium and large unused underwear (male and female)
Bags for life
If donations can fit into a car, we would be grateful if you could drop them off at our hubs during opening times (they can be left outside our shutters to minimise contact). For larger food donations, we can arrange a collection – please call 0161 850 2282 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange. Please note that we are currently prioritising the above essential food items over all other donations.
Dried, packets and cartons
Instant mashed potato
Milk (powdered and UHT)
Pasta and pasta sachets
Rice (incl. bagged and flavoured)
Tins (preferably ones with ring pulls)
Beans, pulses and lentils
Curry (chicken, beef, vegetarian)
Fish (tuna, sardines etc.)
Meat (ham, chicken, sausages, hot dogs)
Pasta (ravioli and spaghetti)
Personal hygiene items
Deodorant (roll-on is best)
Sanitary Towels and Tampons
Mouth wash (travel size is best)

Unfortunately, we are usually unable to collect food and essential items, so please ensure you have your own transport to get the items to us. If you are planning a collection, please email email@example.com to arrange a suitable time to bring it to one of our hubs or call 0161 850 2282.
