we are moving

2nd December 2020

✅By the end of this week Sunderland foodbank foodstore will have moved to a new premises close to Chester-le-Street. This is an exciting joint venture with Durham foodbank.

✅Our amazing teams of volunteers have helped shift nearly 35 tonnes of food, and an epic amount of shelving, sorting stations, desks and other bits n bobs! Thank you so much to each and every one of you 😊

✅Our Foodbank Coordinator will continue to work closely with our 9 distribution centres in Sunderland, and will have an office at the Coop Centre in Hendon.

✅We will have a drop off point in Sunderland for small to medium sized donations (think of a couple of carriers bags to a car boot, but not a van full) and will confirm details as soon as we can.

✅Meanwhile, donations can be dropped off at our permanent collection points around the city, please see below for our food collection point locations:

Morrisons Seaburn
Sainsbury’s Fulwell
Asda Grangetown, Seaham and Washington
Sunderland Carers Centre
South Hylton Surgery
Redhouse Medical Centre
Roker End Cafe at the Stadium of Light
Spar, Hylton Road, North Hylton Road, and The Broadway

✅Thank you to everyone who over the past 3 years has supported us, and donated to us at our foodstore in Hendon.
