We appreciate all the support we get for many schools in the Reading area especially around harvest time.

Non-perishable donations

For donations to the warehouse the food items must all be either boxed up or in plastic bags. This makes items easier to transport when collecting.

We can supply plastic crates to box food in and then deliver back to us. To obtain crates from Readifood please call the office 0118 9872672 or email admin@readifood.org.uk 

Upon receipt of the donations we will weigh them and send out a certificate with the total weight to your school along with a thank you letter.

Delivery to us must please be arranged in advance, by calling the office or emailing. A collection by ReadiFood may also be booked – please contact the office in advance.

  • Tinned vegetables
