 Our 2023 Christmas Campaign is now live.  You can read all the details here but there is a summary below.

 Our Christmas Wishlist

  • Christmas biscuits 
  • Christmas cakes or packs of Christmas chocolate mini rolls, etc
  • Chocolates/sweets - anything that looks festive! 
  • Selection boxes
  • Chocolate coins, etc.
  • Pringles, cheddars or similar crisps In a cardboard tube (more robust for packing and transporting) (other brands are available!!)
  • Bottles of fizzy grape juice or similar
  • Tins of salmon
  • Tins of ham
  • Sachets of instant custard or tins/cartons of custard
  • SMALL boxes of crackers/biscuits for cheese
  • Christmas puddings
  • Boxes of mince pies –preferably without lots of brandy. Mince Pies do come with a shorter shelf life so please check before you buy!

All with a Use By or Best Before date that's after 25th December and nothing that needs refrigerating.
Please remember that these items will all be packed into bags then transported to our collection sessions.  So, for example, small bags of solid milk chocolate Santas are more useful than hollow and very fragile chocolate Santas!

Please can you deliver your Christmas donations as early as possible (ideally by w/c December 4th) to give us the best possible chance of distributing things before Christmas.  We can still use later donations, but it really does make our life much easier if the Christmas food arrives early, 


We are open to receive incoming food donations on Mondays

(except bank holiday Mondays)

at the Michael Church, 140 Lowedges Road  between 10am and 12 noon.


 More information on how to donate food here.  

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



Although all the Covid regulations have ended, we ask that you don't come to any foodbank activity in any capacity if you are testing positive for Covid-19 or you believe that you have Covid-19.



 You can contact us on [email protected] or 07964 896283 with any questions.



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


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!

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?


Could you organise a fundraising event for us?
