Hull Together – new food donation points open

New food donation points open across the city to help with the cost of living crisis

Hull 4 Heroes, part of the #HullTogether group which is working to help people cope with the cost of living crisis, has become the logistical lead for four new food donation points across the city. The food donated by the public will be distributed to 17 community food aid organisations across the city, supporting residents from all backgrounds and communities.

Announcing the new venues, Paul Matson, CEO and Founder of Hull 4 Heroes, said; “In hard times the people of Hull have always pulled together and supported anyone who may be less fortunate than themselves. I believe they will do so again now. Our local food providers are unfortunately needed now more than ever and are struggling to source the essential items they need. If the Hull community can help in any way, no matter how small, they could make a huge difference to someone else’s life.”

The new donation points are:

  • North Bransholme Community Centre, The Paul Ingle Boxing Academy, Lothian Way, Hull HU7 5DD
    Opening Hours: Monday – Friday, 10am-12noon.


  • Pearson Park East Lodge, Pearson Park, Beverley Road, Hull HU5 2TQ
    Opening Hours: Tuesday, 10am – 3pm.


  • St Stephens Management Suite, Ground floor level (near Tesco car park), 110 Ferensway, Hull HU2 8LN
    Opening Hours: Monday – Saturday, 9am – 7pm. Sunday, 10.30am – 4.30pm.


  • Freedom Centre, 97 Preston Road, Hull HU9 3QB
    Opening hours: Monday and Thursday, 8.30am – 5pm. Tuesday and Wednesday, 8.30am – 6pm. Friday, 8.30am – 6pm.

The food collection points are particularly looking for donations of ambient items such as longlife milk, tinned and packet goods, cereals, soup, pasta and cooking sauces. When times are hard and people are having to manage on a tight budget, they often have to compromise on toiletries so donations of personal care items such as shampoo, toothpaste, soap, lip balm, deodorant, baby essentials and sanitary products are very welcome. Click here for a longer list of the kinds of items you can donate.

Cllr Mike Ross, Leader Hull City Council, commented, “I am really proud of the way that the city’s voluntary and community groups like Hull 4 Heroes, as well as individual residents have stepped up to offer help to people who are struggling to cope in the current cost of living crisis, and applaud their generosity. As a council, and working with our #HullTogether partners, we will be doing everything we can to support our residents in these difficult times.”
