If you would like to help support the vital work of WAN providing essentials for the most vulnerable members of our community, there are several ways you can donate.
Making a Donation
All financial donations to WAN are enormously appreciated, and they help make sure we can continue to offer support services to as many people as possible who are in need. Although the Food Bank is primarily stocked with items kindly donated by individuals, businesses and local groups, sometimes supplies run low, and we need to buy in extra. Cash donated to WAN will go not only towards our running costs, but to stocking up our shelves and ensuring that our food parcels contain healthy, nutritious essentials for people who really need them.
One-off donations can now be made online via our Givey fundraising page:

Donating Food & Other Items
When it comes to the Food Bank, every little helps and all donations are greatly appreciated. As a general rule, items donated to the Food Bank need to be of a ‘long life’ nature – tinned or dried goods - and all within their best before/use by date. Unfortunately, the team cannot accept donations of fresh produce to the Food Bank.
Some examples of items that can be donated to the Food Bank, and which are often in high demand, include:
- Tinned vegetables and fruit
- Tinned meats and fish
- Pasta or curry sauces
- Baked beans and tinned spaghetti
- Tinned puddings and custard
- Jars of coffee and teabags
The Food Bank also accepts non-edible items to be included in food parcels too, including:
- Shampoo and conditioner
- Shower gel and soap
- Toothpaste and toothbrushes
- Household cleaning products
- Washing powder
The team also post regular updates on social media listing items most needed at a given time, see the Westbury Area Network Facebook page for more information.
