Leeds South & East Food Bank posted an update on 1st April 2020

Thank you

A MASSIVE THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE DONATED SO FAR.

I am the Development Manager of Leeds South & East Food bank and hoping to raise funds for this charity that is extremely close to my heart.

I am climbing Mount Kilimanjaro this June and July to raise funds for our Foodbank. To reach the summit is extremely challenging, both physically and mentally. Even more so, as I manage the degenerative conditions scoliosis and arthritis. For me this will be a huge personal achievement, made even more so if I can raise funds for the foodbank whilst doing it!!! 

January 22 to June 22 statistics show that our foodbank has provided 6928 people including 2813 children with emergency food parcels. The food bank supports some of the most vulnerable people in our local community and as the cost of living crisis bites we are seeing more and more working families and individuals requiring our service and this is not right.

The cost of living crisis is impacting Leeds South & East food bank in a number of ways:

1. We are sadly seeing increased demand across S & E Leeds and expecting this to get higher.

2. We are seeing a reduction in donations as people are changing their shopping habits.

 We need your urgent help to raise funds:

Thank you.
