Donate food with Ocado 2.50 GBP


Product information

You give money, we give food. Buy a £2.50 voucher and we'll give at least £5 of fresh groceries to our charity food partners. So your donation counts for double or more. 

Our charity food partners send us their grocery wish list - it could be simply meat and veg, or tea and loaves of bread - every partner is different. We match your £2.50 donation with at least £5 of fresh groceries and send donations out as often as needed. 

Donate Food with Ocado puts power back into the hands of food charities. Rather than receiving boundless baked beans or piles of potatoes, which they can't always redistribute, this way they get exactly what they need. Between 4th December 2017 and 4th August 2018, customers generously donated over £350,000. That's at least £700,000 of fresh groceries for our charity food partners. (And counting!)

Who are our charity food partners?

We've built relationships with a number of registered food charities across the country. Each partner has been chosen for the incredible difference they make to the community. Donation figures are published each year in our Annual Report and our Corporate Responsibility Report, available at 

Here's how it works:

1. Add a £2.50 voucher to your trolley. (£5 and £10 vouchers are available, too.)

2. Finish your weekly Ocado shop and check out as usual.

3. We send charity food partners at least £5 of fresh groceries.

Had you thought of Gift Aiding it?

Like others I dont need the card, the receipt is fine. But had you thought about claiming Gift Aid for the donation as well?

Waitrose Not So Generous

M&S donates FREE perishable foods to local food banks as they near their expiry date WITHOUT demanding any contribution from us.

Least we can do

It's a travesty that we need food banks at all but given that this is the situation we find ourselves in it's good to have an easy way of helping others. Definitely get rid of the card though.

maybe not just food.....

I love the fact that Ocado are helping food banks. This is a great initiative but instead of donating 'fresh food', why not give the food banks Ocado vouchers in order for them to buy the items that they need within their community. Sometimes the community requirement may not be for items in the form of fresh could be nappies, sanitary products, toothpaste, shampoo etc. and by converting customer donations into vouchers, the people in the know could buy whatever they need for their own community while also supporting Ocado in the process. :) :) :)

With other reviewers, I would ask NOT to receive the card each time I make this donation. It seems counterproductive to making the donation in the first place: save the card, save the cost, I'm happy with having it listed on my receipt, I don't need a card!
