About

Food Bank face to face services are suspended at present so please do not come to Holmfirth Library or Holmfirth Methodist Church. We are operating by delivery only.

Donations

We’re helping more people than ever with emergency food bags. 2020 is by far our busiest year and we need to be in a position to continue to help people in need in the Holme Valley. That’s why we’re making this appeal.

Good news!  Between now and 31st January, all your online donations will have double the impact. Any money you donate online will be matched by One Community and the Match It fund.

That means that your generous donations are worth twice as much to us. If you can help us with a donation we would be really grateful.Screen Shot 2020-10-02 at 18.01.44

Who we are

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

The Holme Valley Food Bank – also known as Food Bank Volunteers (Holme Valley) – is an independent, constituted community body that works in collaboration with other organisations to provide help to people in need in the Holme Valley with emergency food provisions.

In “normal” times we work with:

  • Locala at the Holme Valley Memorial Hospital, where food is stored and packed,
  • Holmfirth Methodist Church where food is given out on Tuesday, Thursday & Friday
  • Holmfirth Library where food bags are given out on Saturday.

We are run entirely by volunteers.

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.

Did you know?

During Covid19 we are helping more people than ever. Often the need for our emergency foodbank packs outstrips supply. That means we need to use our financial resources to buy extra food,

We really need your help now

We’re making a special plea for food and cash donations please. Food collection points are in Holmfirth Co-op, Holmfirth Sainsbury’s,  Bargain Booze Holmfirth, Yorkshire Building Society Holmfirth, Scholes Stores and Post Office, Wooldale Co-op.
If you can help us with donations we would be really grateful.

People also help in different ways for example by raising awareness of the foodbank, telling their friends, family and colleagues about us, and sharing and liking our social media messages.

We couldn’t do this without you! Thank you for caring.
