Hounslow Community Foodbox

Donate food and toiletries

FoodBox relies on your support to provide help to people in crisis. Almost all of the food that goes into our parcels is donated by people in the local community.

How to donate

You can organise donations in a variety of ways:

  • Bring your donations directly to FoodBox at the Rose Community Centre, or a volunteer driver will collect from you.
  • Bring your donations to one of our collection points at ASDA Hounslow, Co-op Boston Manor Road, Brentford, Co-op Isleworth, LIDL West Ealing or Morrisons Brentford. 
  • Organise or contribute to a street or neighbourhood collection in your area, via the Garden Collection Initiative.
  • Run a food drive for FoodBox either as an individual, business, school or other religious or non-religious organisation.
  • Donate as a local catering business, just like Finecrown Bakery, or another that has a kitchen. School kitchens can also donate surplus supplies.

FoodBox donations can be delivered directly to the Rose Community Centre, Hawthorn Road, Brentford, TW8 8NT.

We are open to receive donations Tuesday - Friday 10am - 1pm, and Saturday 10am - 12pm.

If you can’t come in person to FoodBox we will try to arrange a volunteer driver to collect your items.
