Donate food

Our foodbank relies on your goodwill and support.

Over 90% of the food distributed by food banks 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.

For now, we are only accepting food donations via Bankuet – an online service that makes it easier for you to give food banks what they need, when they need it. Find out more and donate now.

If you prefer, you can also donate money to Islington Foodbank directly which we can buy food with.


We have collection boxes in the following local supermarkets, but for now donations left in these will continue to go to the Pilion Trust as they have been since March this year. Donations left in these boxes should be purchased from the shop, not brought from home.

We are not currently accepting walk-in donations to our centre at Highbury Roundhouse.


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