Businesses asked to support Durham Food Bank

Durham Food Bank, part of a nationwide network of foodbanks supported by The Trussell Trust, is seeking the support of businesses to help tackle food poverty and support local people in crisis.

Run by Durham Christian Partnership, the food bank welcomes regular and one-off support from businesses to volunteer at its warehouse based on the Drum Industrial Estate.

The food bank provides emergency food for three days along with practical support to help people in crisis, and signposts to other services to help people recover, rebuild their lives, and break the cycle of poverty.

It accepts food donations directly at their premises on The Drum Industrial Estate to help and support local people in crisis.

The food bank is currently requesting the following items to be donated:

  • Instant meals (kettle food)
  • Long life fruit juice
  • Jam and preserves
  • Chocolate
  • Tinned potatoes
  • Biscuits and savoury treats

Other ways to help include organising a fundraising event or donating food or equipment to help with the day-to-day running of the food bank.

Durham Food Bank is located at Unit 7/9 First Avenue, Drum Industrial Estate, Chester le Street, DH2 1AG. The opening hours are Monday to Friday from 9.30am to 2pm.
