Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.
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 on the right shows the food items that we need right now.

We always welcome donations and promise to use them to provide help to people in crisis. Occasionally we send food to other nearby foodbanks to support their work particularly if they experience shortages. This ensures your donations go to help people wherever in the UK they are.
If you don’t necessarily shop locally or sometimes forget to pick up a donation then do go to https://www.bankuet.co.uk/hailsham where you can buy a food parcel that contains only the items we need the most and it gets sent direct to us.
We are often short of toiletries, household goods such as washing tablets and certain size nappies. You can choose an item from our wishlist and it gets sent direct to us. Search for Hailsham foodbank at https://www.easho.org.uk/apps/giftregistry.
Please contact us if you have any questions about donating food.
