Donate food

Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.

Over 90% of the food distributed by foodbanks in The Trussell Trust network is donated by the public – that’s why your food donations are absolutely vital to our ability to give everyone referred to us a balanced and nutritious three day supply of food.

Our shopping list on the right shows the food items that we need right now.

If you are happy to drop off food donations, please see the table below for our food collection point locations:

Location of food donation point     Opening hours Comments
Sainsbury’s, 101-105 High St, Hornchurch RM11 1TX 0800 – 2200, except Sunday  front of store
Tesco, Airfield Way, Hornchurch RM12 5AF (in-store shoppers only) 0900-2200, except Sunday front of store
Tesco Extra, Bridge Rd, Rainham RM13 9YZ (in-store shoppers only) 24hr, except Sunday customer service desk

Please note: The food donated to either of these locations must have been bought in store only.

Any food that has been purchased in a different store and brought into the PCP store should be sealed by the donor and clearly labelled as having been purchased elsewhere.

We always welcome donations and promise to use them to provide help to people in crisis. Occasionally we send food to other nearby foodbanks to support their work particularly if they experience shortages. This ensures your donations go to help people wherever in the UK they are.

Please contact us if you have any questions about donating food.
