Our foodbank relies on the goodwill and support of the people of Oldham helping their fellow Oldhamers.
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 have had a fantastic response to our appeal for Christmas Fare and don’t need any more at the moment, but as usual we are always in need of cash donations.

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