Food banks in Sheffield - how and what to donate

Food banks provide a vital and necessary service to our society, and to the people of Sheffield. More than 14 million people in the UK live below the poverty line. And the number of food banks has increased significantly in the last 5 years, with food banks in the UK now outnumbering the number of McDonalds branches.

The Trussell Trust reported an increase of 73% in food bank use, with the main reasons people used food banks being:

  • Income did not cover essential costs (33.11%)
  • Benefit delays (20.34%)
  • Benefit changes (17.36%)

And with Christmas just around the corner, the need for food banks is even more essential for some. So, we've compiled a list of the food banks in Sheffield - outlining what they need and might not need, and how to donate.

However, if you would rather donate financially, you can do so via The Trussell Trust website.
