Donate Food

The food bank relies on your goodwill and support.

Over 90% of the food distributed by food banks in The Russell Trust network is donated by the public – that’s why our food donations are absolutely vital to their ability to give everyone referred to them a balance of nutritious three day supply of food.

The shopping list below shows items that they need right now. This list will be updated regularly on this web page, on the collection box in the porch and posters on our notice boards along with slips handed out by our welcomers.

This is a thank you note sent to St Nicholas from the food bank

Dear Gi,

Many thanks for the generous food donation received recently from St Nicholas’s Church, Winchcombe. This weighed in at an excellent 50.74kg!

With rising prices in energy and food, we saw a marked increase in demand at our local Foodbank during 2022 particularly in the last few months. Your donation will help to ensure that our Foodbank is well stocked over coming months so that we can meet any further increase in demand, and help those in our community who are struggling.

Please may I ask you to pass on our sincere thanks to all at St Nicholas who continue to donate on a very regular basis and for their compassion and kindness to all the clients we are looking after – they are so grateful. 

Kind regards,

Project Manager
North Cotswold Foodbank
