We benefit from the generosity of individuals, businesses, groups, churches & schools in and around Sherborne. Find food donation points at Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Sherborne Abbey, Cheap St. Church and other places. See what we need.


We are grateful to the many individuals and organisations who support us including Battens Charitable Trust, Sherborne Castles Rotary Club and SouthWest Trains.  To fundraise, make a donation or set up a direct debit visit JustGiving.


We need volunteers for collecting food from donation points, sorting food at our depot, picking and packing parcels, helping with deliveries and supporting events. If you would like to join our friendly team please let us know.
