There are four ways to donate money to Windsor Foodshare. We use the money to buy fresh fruit and vegetables as an example. We spend £225 a week on fresh produce at the moment.
The four donation methods are given in our preferred order.
Give once or give monthly through Bankuet. With Bankuet, you can give to a food bank at the touch of a button through the website. Plus, your donation goes as far as possible for maximum impact through the power of bulk buying; for every £1 you give, Bankuet delivers £1.15-1.20 of food! After you’ve given, Bankuet will ensure your donation is dropped off at the food bank at a time most convenient to them.

Tip: Bankuet donations are made in “bundles”. So to give £250 donate 5 x £50, or £30 as 3 x £10.
