Our News

Another busy morning on Saturday. 136 food parcels given out which means 230 adults and 105 children fed. The cafe was busy as usual.

We are still getting requests for emergency bedding although the weather has warmed up. Some of the people who come to us are being re-housed or have medical conditions that mean extra bedding is needed, and we try to help when we can

Clothing and bedding donations

A very big thanks to everyone who donated clothing and warm bedding throughout the winter and responded to our Winter Supplies Project. However we don’t need any more clothing donations at the moment. What we always need is good quality laundered sheets, duvet covers and pillow cases. Also new duvets are always welcome, but no used duvets or pillows. Bedding donations can be brought in on Saturday mornings when we are open and given to Janet or Gina

Many Thanks

We’re delighted to have been awarded another £500 Magic Little Grant which is from Localgiving in partnership with the Postcode Lottery Trust. This is for fresh food. We’re really keen to offer as much fresh food as possible with our food parcels – fruit and veg, eggs and cheese. 

If any of you gardeners out there ever have surplus produce we are always happy to receive it. Every little bit helps!

We have over 300 families and individuals registered with us for support. Some folk need to come often but some only come occasionally. People come for all sorts of different reasons and find it a welcoming and sociableenvironment. 

June had this to say:

“Being a pensioner it’s hard to cope with soaring fuel costs and food prices. I’m just on a pension. I have been coming to the foodbank on Saturdays for a while. I have been really grateful for the help and the volunteers are so helpful and caring. It means I am able to cope with meals during the week.”

Can you help girls and women with vital sanitary products?

We all know from national research that many girls and young women can’t go to school during their period because they can’t afford period products. We get many requests for sanitary products but they are an expensive item for us to buy in addition to food. We are asked for incontinence pads too. Can you help?

Donations of any tampons, pads or towels can be left at our donation points at Hebden Coop, Morrisons in Todmorden or Tod Library. There is also a donations box in the foyer of Tod College.  All donations will be very gratefully received.

Alternatively you could support us financially with this by donating at https://localgiving.org/charity/todfooddropin

Thanks all!
