What’s in a food box?

Our foodbank provides three days of nutritionally balanced, non-perishable food.

The Trussell Trust has worked with nutritionists to ensure food boxes contains sufficient nutrition for at least three days worth of healthy, balanced meals for individuals and families.

A typical food box includes:

  • Breakfast cereals
  • Soup
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Pasta sauce
  • Tinned beans
  • Tinned meat
  • Tinned vegetables
  • Tinned fruit
  • Tea or coffee
  • Sugar
  • Biscuits
  • Snacks

Dietary requirements

Our foodbank can usually adapt your food box to meet your dietary needs, for example, gluten free or vegetarian. Please discuss this with your care worker at the referral agency that gives you a voucher.

We can also provide limited cooking boxes for people with only access to hot water.  These include instant noodles, cup a soup, cereal bars, tins of ham / chicken etc.
