Please note that our office and warehouse are at 33 Boulton Road, Reading.   We will ask you to place food in a crate at the door so that you will not need to enter the premises or come into close contact with staff or volunteers.

Our office is normally open from 10.00 till 4.00 every weekday to receive food donations.

If you are delivering a large quantity of food i.e. a van load please do ring first.
