How to donate food to Oldham Foodbank

23rd February 2022

We’re often reaching out to you, the good people of Oldham, asking for food donations. Here we explain exactly how you can do it…

Drop off points

For many people, the easiest way to donate food to Oldham Foodbank is to buy a couple of extra shopping items and drop them off at your nearest collection point. Major supermarkets throughout Oldham have foodbank collection points, as well as community centers and local businesses.

Our drivers pick up from these collection points regularly and bring the food back to the foodbank warehouse, where it is processed and sent out in emergency parcels.

You can find a list of Oldham Foodbank drop off points here. Take a look and find the ones nearest to you.
