Donate food

Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.

Almost all the food distributed by Chiltern 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.

You can donate food to us in a number of ways.


Supermarket Donations

Our shopping list on this page reflects the food items that we would prefer to receive at this time.

If you are happy to drop off food donations, please see the table below for our Supermarket food collection point locations:

We always welcome donations and promise to use them to provide help to people in crisis. Occasionally we send food to other nearby foodbanks or organisations providing support to those in need in order to support their work, particularly if they are experiencing shortages.

Please contact us if you have any questions about donating food.

*Tesco collection points are intended for food that has been purchased by in-store shoppers only. Any food that has been purchased in a different store and brought into Tesco collection point and clearly labelled as having been purchased elsewhere. This is because Tesco give us a top up financial donation depending on the amount of food that their in-store shoppers have donated. 


The Hub, Chalfont St.Peter

Food donations can be dropped off Monday – Friday, 09:00 – 17:00. Their address is Gold Hill Baptist Church, Church Lane, Chalfont St Peter, Gerrards Cross, SL9 9RF.


Bank the Food

We use Bank the Food, which automatically updates the items we are most in need of in real time. Simply download the app and select Chiltern Foodbank as preferred. You can also enable notifications, which means you’ll receive a notification when you visit a local supermarket, that has a drop off point.
