New Food Bank Appeal in Darnall

List of foods that we need
In 2013-14 food banks fed 913,138 people nationwide. Of those helped, 330,205 were children. Rising food and fuel prices, static incomes, under-employment and changes to benefits are some of the reasons why increasing numbers of people are being referred to food banks for emergency help.

Darnall Forum and Sheffield Muslim Community Forum are working alongside local residents to launch the S9 Food Bank Appeal. Please pledge your support. 


Gifts of food will be collected on our behalf by Living Waters, who work with the Burngreave Food Bank and the Trussell Trust to provide a local food bank service in Darnall.

Thank you to the Darnall Ward councillors who have already pledged their support towards the S9 Foodbank appeal. They will be involved in the planning and organising of the appeal. Please see a list of foods we urgently require.

Contact Zahira for further information.

Rather than short term solutions which means the problem will always there, shouldn't long term solutions be found?
