Another busy week for us at FoodAWARE HQ but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Huge thanks to Superdrug for their latest donation of surplus snacks last week which are being redistributed to our community projects across Doncaster, Rotherham, Barnsley, Sheffield and across South Yorkshire
The continuous support from Superdrug is a huge help for all our projects across the FoodAWARE CIC network.
Are you the manager of a local business able to provide support such as Superdrug?
If so we would love to hear from you and lets work together bringing in further supplies for our community projects.
DN7 Food Bank
A huge pleasure to welcome DN7 Food Bank from Doncaster to our Hellaby base today in Rotherham, South Yorkshire.
Fab partnership working thanks to Doncaster Council Fightback Fund via Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) supporting local communities through challenging COVID-19 times.
DN7 Foodbank as the name suggests was formed to help the communities in the whole of the DN7 area to alleviate food poverty, provide a listening ear and to give the hand up to those in need.

Mel Howram from our team does love a Wednesday evening as in her role at Food Aware CIC she gets to pop by Sleepsafe Selby with a donation of needed items and catch up with all the lovely guests, especially our little four legged buddy Pixel.
