We are very grateful for the large donations of food from:

Every week we receive individual donations of food and money from the Holme Valley community to help us support those in HD9. We are enormously appreciative of this wave of kindness which constantly laps around the Food Bank. Where we can, we like to thank people by letter or email.
THANK YOU for your generosity & continuing support. Huge THANKS also to those who give anonymously to support us during the coronavirus pandemic emergency. Without your help, we could not provide the support to households in difficulty in our community
Thank you so much. Your support is amazing and so important to us.
A HUGE THANK YOU to all our wonderful VOLUNTEERS!
Did you know that Holme Valley Foodbank is run entirely by volunteers?
It’s all go – collecting food, sorting, packing, running sessions in normal times, delivering food, designing and producing newsletters and posters, social media and website, planning, organising, running the foodbank and so much more… Thank you all!
We are helping more people with emergency food bags than ever before! See our fab Food Bank volunteers sorting and packing, and lovely volunteer drivers from the Holme Valley Mutual Aid Group coming to pick up the bags for delivery. Thank you Holme Valley – you’re amazing!
To those of you who don’t know Costa of Scholes Fisheries, let us introduce him to you. Recently he donated three sacks of beautiful spuds to Holme Valley Food Bank and here he is shouldering a 25kg bag to my vehicle. Just imagine the number of chips you can make from a bag this size! Costa says these potatoes are also great for mashing, roasting and baking and they keep well. Mmmm mouthwatering THANK YOU so much Costa, your gift will make a big difference to struggling families this week. You are a star!
