BIG Doorstep GIVE Appeal

Our BIG Little GIVE campaign aims to stock our shelves with core food items and we have already seen an enormous response from businesses, groups and supermarket collections.

For the many of you who can’t get to a collection point however we are giving you the opportunity to donate from your doorstep – In our BIG Doorstep GIVE weekend!

It’s very simple to take part:

  1. Send us an email at helpline@mkfoodbank.org.uk or WhatsApp 07874 964505 with your address and postcode. We can collect from anywhere with an MK postcode but you must tell us where you are!
  2. We’ll reply with a time slot that a volunteer collection driver will be in your area.
  3. Before your allocated slot, place your donations of long-life food (see list of most-needed items below) in a clearly visible spot on your doorstep.


Please share this event and spread the word in any way you can. Together we can fill our shelves and ensure we can continue to support anyone in need in Milton Keynes.

BIG little GIVE Appeal

Right now, we are in the middle of the busiest winter the Food Bank has ever seen. Food prices and home energy costs are absolutely soaring and every single day we hear from dozens of people who can’t keep their houses warm or who are struggling to feed themselves and their children.

In the 6 weeks of 2022 so far we have given out more than 2,500 food parcels. This is around 10% up on last year – and rising. It also means that we are running dangerously low on our core food items.

To address this, we are launching our BIG Little GIVE 2022 campaign!

Our ask?

That as many people as possible GIVE a Little, to make a BIG difference

Our goal? To collect 33,333 of our desperately needed items throughout the month of March.

It’s as easy as 1,2,3!

Donate just 1, 2 or 3 items and encourage everyone you know to do the same!
