The Food Bank is open on Friday Afternoons between 1.00pm and 3.00pm for pre arranged collections.
We know that many people struggle to feed their families and that a Foodbank can make a real difference. If you or someone you know is struggling to put food on the table the most important thing is to get in touch and see if we can help.
If this is the first time you’ve spoken to us (or it’s been several months), we call that a ‘self referral’ and we will arrange for you to collect an emergency parcel. It contains enough food for you and your family for about three days.
We can also offer a further two if required whilst you look for further help. In order to use the Foodbank after that you need a Food Bank Voucher or be referred by a recognised support agency such as ChapelGreen Advice centre, Social services, Citizens Advice, etc.
A very big thankyou to everyone who give us donations either individually or through the baskets in ASDA where we picked up an amazing 11 trollys worth last month. Demand is always greater over the holiday period and thanks to everyones incredible donations we didn’t have to buy anything in to top up the bags!
This month (February) we’re running low on:-
- Tinned Fruit and tinned or packet custard
- Long Life Milk
- Loo Rolls!
Please Note: we currently have plenty of Pasta, Rice, Tins of Baked Beans, Tinned Meat in Sauce and Soup.
Every donation we receive makes a real difference and we’re grateful for your generosity in this time of uncertainty.
Chapeltown ASDA has a trolly for taking donations which we collect regularly if you shop there or you can drop off at the Food Bank on Fridays when we’re open or by arrangement.
Volunteers are always welcome on alternate Tuesday mornings and Friday afternoons (check the church calendar for times) or speak to one of the team.
