Big Local in partnership with Selby Foodbank

By October 9, 2017Projects

Can you help someone who is hungry?

Selby Big Local has been working in partnership with Selby and District Foodbank to raise awareness of the services it offers, ensure that those facing food crisis can access support and encourage donations to Foodbank collection points.

With support from Big Local, Selby Foodbank has been able to drop leaflets at 3000 homes in the Selby Big Local area and new posters have gone up around the district.

There is increasing demand for Foodbank services in Selby.

From April 2016 – end March 2017, 12,800kg of food was distributed to 1309 people but current donations in the district are not enough.

We hope that through this publicity campaign we’ll be able to reach even more people, those in food crisis and those who would like to donate food and supplies.

As well as food collection points in local supermarkets, you can now donate directly to the Foodbank at 30 New Lane or drop-off at Community House on Portholme Road.

Selby Foodbank is open 10-1pm every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Food parcels are provided in exchange for food vouchers (obtained through Citizens Advice, Job Centre, Access Selby and other agencies). Email: info@selby.foodbank.org.uk or call 07413 374750.
