Swanage Food Bank November update


Again, a thank you to everyone who has donated food to SFB in the past month. Our supplies quickly diminish as the demand increases so these are urgent needs plus a list of items which may contribute towards the fifty Christmas Hampers we give our clients.


  • Urgent needs : 

  • tins of cold meat (ham, luncheon meat, Spam, corned beef, etc)

  • sugar, 
  • shop bought marmalade, jam and honey, 
  • savoury spreads (peanut butter, marmite, etc), 
  • desserts (sponge puddings, custard, jellies, whips, etc)                          


  • At present, we don't need :

  • tins of soup and baked beans,
  • or dried pasta and rice


  • Christmas Hamper items

    (preferably before December 6th as we buy for the hampers after that date) :

Tins or cartons of mixed chocolates (e.g. Roses, Quality Street)

Chocolate coins and tubes of sweets for children

Ham and salmon (large tins for families)

Christmas puddings and alternative sponge puddings
