Mexborough Foodbank

Another very busy Foodbank session today with 30 food parcels distributed across Mexborough, Denaby & Conisbrough as we start back in 2024…hitting the ground running!
Most of these were delivered by Mexborough Foodbank Manager Sean and Alan & Ian as we were three drivers short today. Full team should be back next Friday!
Huge thanks to all our hardworking volunteers who work so hard each week helping people less fortunate.
We DO NOT accept self referrals and food parcels are only provided via email referrals received from community partners above.
Thank you to everyone for your ongoing support with your donations via our local collection points Lidl Mexborough & Aldi UK etc.
This year, 2024, is going to be another very challenging year for so many local people/families and a long winter ahead of us.
