Donate food

Gateshead Foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.

All of the food distributed by Gateshead Foodbank 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’re short of time you can also use our Gateshead Foodbank App

We are also delighted to receive all types of toiletries including: sanitary products, shampoo, shower gel, deodorant and toothpaste.
