Support Foodbank

Here at Portland Foodbank we rely on help from local people to help us feed and support those who are most in need in our community. You can help in a number of ways:

  • Gifts of Food
    You can give donations of food and non-grocery items at Tesco and Co-Op stores on the island; simply place your gifts in the trolleys or baskets located after the checkouts in the stores. You can also bring donations to the foodbank on Tuesday and Friday mornings between 9:30 and 11:30am.
  • Financial Gifts
    Portland Foodbank is a charity and operates a charity bank account so that money can be paid directly to the foodbank.
    • If you would like to make a regular donation please contact us for bank details using the Contact Form on this website or emailing
    • If you would like to make a one-off donation you may do so online by clicking the link here:

      We are now operating a Gift Aid Scheme which allows us to claim an additional 25% of your offering from the government. If you would like us to claim this for your donations, could you please complete the Gift Aid form and return it to us at the foodbank, or by post to Foodbank Gift Aid Secretary, 4 Thumb Lane, Portland, DT5 2FB.

      Note: If you are joining our gift aid scheme then please make sure you include your Surname and 1st Initial in the reference field of your standing order or bank transfer.
