Pop-Up Food Bank
We provide a small food bank in the north of England to help people in our local community. The number of people using food banks across the UK has risen from tens of thousands to millions since 2006.
There are many factors contributing to the rise of food poverty, including national welfare reforms, the rise of zero hours contracts, and struggling local economies. We also provide food, toiletries and other essentials. We go from door to door to get the food to the people as a pop-up service.
The people’s pop-up food bank helps people in crisis.
We know that anyone can find themselves in a financial crisis and we’re here to help. Individuals and families face challenges such as job loss, debt and eviction, benefit issues, homelessness, domestic violence, substance misuse, and physical and mental health problems. Real people find themselves in need of our support.
Everyone is welcome one world one community one people.
The food packs we give out contain enough food for seven days. We try to provide a good quantity of nutritious, high quality food in our food packs, and tailor each pack to meet people’s dietary requirements and preferences. We believe in respecting people’s food choices no matter what financial predicament they find themselves in. We also supply toiletries when available. We welcome people needing our services to turn up on the day – no appointment is necessary.
We are asking everyone who would like food donated to contact us on our main numbers below. Alternatively, email us. We will bring the food to you.
Now the crisis has died down, we aim to carry on with our pop-up food bank every two months at locations around Yorkshire and the North West our pop-up food bank is unique you don’t need to register you just need to turn up on the day and you will be given two bags of shopping of your choice.
If there are any local community shops in the region such as grocery stores who will like to donate food, please call or send an email to make arrangements and we will collect the food directly from you.
