Where can I drop off my food donation?

There are multiple drop off points for Big Red Box this year, whether you’ve filled a box, have a bag full of food or just one item – anything and everything you give is much appreciated.

We will be collecting food every Sunday at our Lee, Downham and Catford sites during our service times:

Catford Site, Catford Hill SE6 4PS: 9:30am – 1pm & 5:30pm – 7:30pm
Downham Site, The Green Downham Way BR1 5LS: 9.30am – 1pm
Lee Site, 21 Meadowcourt Road, SE3 9EU: 10:30am – 12noon

We are also able to take food at the Catford Site Monday – Friday between 9am and 5pm.

We have three collection weekends coming up at local supermarket stores so if you haven’t bought your Big Red Box donation food yet please join us on one of the following dates and hand your food to one of our fabulous volunteers:

Co-Op Downham: Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd November
Sainsbury’s Lee Green: Friday 27th Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th November
Co-Op Downham: Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th December

We have already packed over 380 boxes this year, but we still need your help to reach our goal of 1000 Big Red Boxes! Any and all items of food help us to achieve that goal but if you can help we are particularly short of the following food items:

  • Fruit Juice (long life)
  • Christmas Puddings
  • Custard
  • Rice Pudding
  • Rice
  • Mince Pies
  • UHT Milk
  • Jam
  • Cereal
We'll be back again soon!

We shouldn’t be too hard to spot, we’re the ones wearing these great t-shirts!

This year we have also partnered with Kings Christmas Trees and will have Big Red Box drop off areas at their tree collection points in Catford, Beckenham and Deptford. For more information about the Kings Christmas Tree project, how to buy a tree and where there collection points are please check out their website.
