Donate food

Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.

Please do not leave any food donations if the Foodbank is closed. Thank you.

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 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
Cheltenham Elim Foodbank


Any weekday :





Tesco on Collets Drive, Asda and Waitrose in Cheltenham also have collection points within their stores that you can add your donation to within their opening hours.  Tesco and/or Asda PCPs are intended for food that has been purchased in-store. 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.



If you would like to bring your donation directly to the foodbank we are open on the times and days outlined at our main hub 115-117 St Georges Road Cheltenham Gl50 3ED






We always welcome donations and promise to use them to provide help to people in crisis. Occasionally we send food to other nearby foodbanks and other food provisions locally 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.
