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.
