Donations can be taken to your local Asda, Co-Op, Morrison’s, Sainsbury’s or Tesco. Additions drop-off locations are listed here.
Did you know?…
You might have seen this image used on our page but weren’t sure what it means…
So, just to fill you in – each 3 day food parcel that we hand out here at Cannock & District Foodbank contains an (incredible!) average of £30 worth of food, (all of which is donated by you – our amazing supporters)!
But, there are also many HIDDEN financial costs involved in operating this kind of service. With our overheads (some of which are listed on this photo) – statistics show that it costs us an average of £4 per person, to process each application.
That’s why as well as food – we’re also super grateful for your monetary donations.
