Leeds (East) Food Bank Support

We are supporting the work of Seacroft Parish which has an outlet for Leeds (East) Foodbank based in St Richard’s Crypt. 

Every week they provide food to ensure around 300+ people can have something to eat. Tinned food, noodles, long-life milk, soups, cereals...basically things that you can eat using minimal energy to heat up (see detailed list below).

The Team at the Foodbank would like to give every family special food parcels for Christmas. For details about what items are needed, click here.

 

Donations can be left at: 

  • St Philip's Church Building

  • Our local shop, Scholes Super Store on Station Road. The third aisle has lots of items that would be ideal, and there is a box in the shop you can leave your purchase in!

What can we give?

Simple foods, easy to cook or heat. Putting the oven on costs money, if it can be warmed by pouring boiling water over or quickly in a pan that is good!

  • Tinned soup, stew, broth, or stock

  • Tinned veg and beans

  • Tinned meat and fish

  • Condiments and spices

  • Cooking oil spray

  • Food that can be eaten straight from the packet

  • Cereals

  • Biscuits

  • Tinned fruit

  • All natural juice

  • Tea and sugar

  • Long-life milk only - fridges cost money to run! 

  • Single helpings

  • Toiletries

  • Shower Gel

  • Soap

  • Shampoo

  • Sanitary items for babies, children, teenagers, or adults

  • Nappies

  • Wet wipes

  • Sanitary towels

  • Dog and cat food - pets are a big comfort but they need to eat!
