Glad we have a food-bank chat at last. I donate regularly via my local supermarket but I know people who think the users are all scroungers. My neighbour is involved in distribution and they always put a list up locally of shortage items, including things like toothpaste.. I don't know how your plan would work - prewrap with a label or contact the local centre directly. I like the idea of an Xmas 'food' bank - nice biscuits, crackers, small games, UNO. My daughter in law lives in Sussex and they are asked to send money directly to the local trust who get items from the cash and carry in bulk! Not the same.
We had a customer steal stuff from the local food bank box as it was 'free' food. He had already done his shopping !
