“The foodbank was there when we really needed it, it was an absolute lifeline.”
We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.
S6 Food bank runs sessions at Philadelphia campus, and 3 other satellite bases.
Fuel bank has been open a year; in 12 months 250 fuel vouchers (for Gas and electricity) have been distributed.
Those in need of clothing and household are referred to Clothes bank; Items are donated by a variety of individuals and partner agencies including Sheffield University.
In 2017/18 over 5500 people were fed with over 70 tonnes of food being distributed across our network of 4 foodbank sites by 72 volunteers. The need is great - and your response is life changing.
Your donations help keep the S6 Foodbank stocked and running, which means that more people are able to get the help they need.
The S6 Foodbank is hosted and administered by Network Church Sheffield, in partnership with the Trussell Trust.
