What’s in a food parcel?

Our foodbank provides a week's nutritionally balanced, non-perishable food.

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

A typical food parcel includes:

  • Breakfast cereals
  • Long life milk
  • Long life juice or squash
  • Soup
  • Pasta or Rice
  • Pasta sauce
  • Tinned beans
  • Tinned meat
  • Tinned fish
  • Tinned vegetables
  • Tinned potatoes or instant mash
  • Tinned fruit
  • Tea or coffee
  • Biscuits
  • Snacks

Dietary requirements

When you arrive at the foodbank centre, let us know if you and your family have any special dietary requirements and we will do our best to adapt your food parcel accordingly.
