Donate Food

Help food-insecure individuals by donating supplies to CFINE.

Poverty overshadows the lives of over one million people in Scotland, including 240,000 children. Members of our community are going hungry and struggling day in day out to make ends meet. Together, we can offer a helping hand to families experiencing food insecurity.

The food that you donate will go directly to people in immediate need. Helping families access food will allow us to continue working together with them on the underlying issues they are experiencing and offer them a hand-up.

Between April 2020 – March 2021, we have delivered over 60,000 food parcels, equivalent of almost 725,000 meals, to people in need in Aberdeen. A significant part of the food distributed by food banks is donated by everyday heroes like you. That’s why your donations play a vital part in alleviating the pressure on families facing food insecurity.

At our premises

You can drop off food donations at our premises at 2-4 Poynernook Road, Aberdeen, AB11 5RW on weekdays between 8am - 4 pm. Just ring the doorbell and one of our friendly team members will accept your donation.

We also welcome supermarket deliveries, such as Asda or Tesco home deliveries. Please use the above address for your order.
