In line with Government instructions to stay at home, we do not expect people to risk their lives making a special trip to donate food. (But if you're in the supermarket* anyway, an item or two left at our drop-off point will be very welcome!)
So the call of the hour is for donations of MONEY. Please help us ensure no-one goes hungry by donating at lutonfoodbank.org.uk/donate

Print-friendly list with drop-off points
A complete list of Luton Foodbank drop-off points. Includes handy credit-card-sized shopping list.
Please check that the expiry date of your donated food is for more than two months.
Please remember that not only should donated food be well within date, it should also have been stored appropriately, because it's not possible for us to tell from the label whether it's been stored badly.
* You can find a list of drop-off points at lutonfoodbank.org.uk/drop but please bear in mind that it could go out of date very quickly. We will strive to keep it up to date.
Every penny you donate will make a difference to those who are struggling to eat across the town.
If you are making a donation, please read the gift aid section below.
To donate to Luton Foodbank on a monthly basis, please contact us for a standing order form, or use Donate now and select Paypal, which allows monthly recurring donations.
To make your donation go further, please complete the gift aid declaration form. (Charity number EW24901)
Gift Aid is a government scheme allowing charities to claim back tax on donations, meaning we get an extra 25p for each pound donated. For example, a £20 donation means we receive £25, at no extra cost to you. But we can only do this if you opt in.

Benefits-related issues and short term crises contribute to the financial strain individuals and families using the Foodbank are under. There is no end in sight to this trend, and we have a long way to go to meet our aim of ensuring no one goes hungry in our town.
