Foodbank unwraps Christmas food shopping list

12th November 2023

Never mind a white Christmas.

Here at Worcester Foodbank all we’re dreaming of is a Christmas where no-one in our city goes hungry.

That’s why we’ve unwrapped our festive food shopping list as we brace ourselves for a challenging countdown to Christmas, with an expected record numbers of referrals to us.

We want everyone in crisis that turns to us for help to enjoy a taste of Christmas – whether that’s some stuffing and cranberry sauce or Christmas cake and mince pies.

Our team of little elves will be working their Christmas socks off to make sure we feed thousands of people over the coming weeks.

The most important ingredient remains your generosity.

With demand for food so high, we won’t be running our usual Christmas toy voucher appeal. Instead we’d love you to show your support by either donating some festive food from our list or making a financial contribution.

These are the items we need:

Dried stuffing

Bread sauce

Canned ham


Pickled onions

Cranberry sauce

Christmas cake

Mince pies

Cheese biscuits/crackers

Cheeselets/Twiglets drum

Chocolate biscuit selection

Boxes/tubs of chocolates

Boxes/tubs of sweets

Bottles of cordial

Dried fruit (dates or figs)
