Holme Valley Foodbank

We are Holme Valley Foodbank. We run an Emergency Foodbank in the Holme Valley.

Our aim is to support people in greatest need in the Holme Valley with an emergency food bag. We help people in need to fill the gap before more permanent arrangements can be made to make sure they have sufficient resources. We are an independent community body run entirely by volunteers.

Where to find us

If you are in crisis we invite you come to us for assistance with food:

Holmfirth Methodist Church    find us here

Tuesday           1215 – 1345hrs

Thursday          1215 – 1345hrs

Please note we are no longer able to operate from Holmfirth Library at present.

How to get help from Holme Valley foodbank

Anyone can be in crisis. Life can be a struggle at times. If you need our help you are welcome to come to us as shown above and we will help you with a food bag. You don’t need a formal referral. We are happy to help.

When you come to us we will provide you with a voucher so you can obtain a food bag. You will need to bring your voucher with you each time you need a food bag. Just come to Holme Valley Foodbank at either Holmfirth Methodist church on the days and times as above and we will help you with an emergency food bag.

Each food bag aims to provide food for a family of four for 2 days. We can also provide toiletries. Look for this sign:

Using the Food Bank

The Food Bank will operate differently because we have a duty to protect you and our volunteers. Please read the notices as you approach and follow the guidance to STAY 6 FEET away from others. Please don’t worry, there is enough food so we can still help you.
