Grace Food Bank ­Sheffield

IMPORTANT: 

We won't be open on Monday 25th May because of the Bank Holiday.  You can bring donations on Tuesday 26th May between 10.45 and 11.30am. Please bring the donations to the door labelled 140A (its tucked away just round the corner, facing towards the shops).

 We will ask you to leave donated food at the side door near the main church (it's labelled 140)  and A volunteer will take it into the foodbank to minimise the number of people in the building. More information on how to donate food here.  We have been advised that foodbank work is "key work" so if  anyone challenges you about being out when you are bringing food, please tell them that you are bringing donated food to a foodbank (if you need my number it's 07964 896283).

PLEASE NOTE that the address for dropping off donated food is NOT the office address!

During this new coronavirus pandemic we all need to consider how we can help to protect each other and the people we serve in the S8 postcode. 

Our latest newsletter contains answers to many of the questions that people have been asking us. Please can I ask you to read it to see if it contains the information you are looking for before you phone or email us?

 PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND ANY FOODBANK ACTIVITIES as a client or as a volunteer if you in one of the following categories:

You have a high temperature and a continuous cough (self-isolate for 7 days) OR you live with someone who has these symptoms (self isolate for 14 days).  The full advice is here:

If you fall into one of the following categories the advice is that you should be social distancing and we strongly recommend that you do not attend any foodbank activity.

  • you are over 70
  • you have an underlying health condition
  • you are pregnant

This advice may change and we will update this page as required. We will also update our Facebook page and send out an email newsletter.  You can subscribe to our newsletter by clicking the red box at the top of this page.

The Grace Food Bank is a community group covering the Sheffield 8 postcode area: Lowedges, Norton, Batemoor, Jordanthorpe and the surrounding areas. We provide food parcels to families / individuals who find themselves in short term financial crisis.

 

How can I help

Volunteering

If you would like to volunteer with us please do get in touch. We can't guarantee that we have volunteering opportunities available at the right time for you so you might want to contact other foodbanks. We do regularly need one off volunteers for special events. To hear about these opportunities please sign up to our newsletter!

Sign up to our Newsletter

Please fill out the form here to receive the latest news from the food bank direct to your Inbox. It's an easy way to find out what's going on and how you can help. We often need one off volunteers for special events and this is how we try to find them.

Collecting Food

All the food we give out has been donated or bought with donated money. Donating food and taking it to one of our collection points is the easiest way you can support us. Or could you organise a food drive for us? Perhaps a collection at your work place or a community event where people donate an item of food to attend?

Fundraising

Could you organise a fundraising event for us?
