St Paul’s Church, Wordsworth Ave, is part of the S6 Foodbank.
They receive deliveries from S6’s warehouse, and donations in cash and kind from the community. There is a box for donations of food, toiletries etc in St Mark's church. For more information on how to donate items please see the S6 Website. On Friday mornings people come to collect their food bags, with an official referral. The bags contain non-perishable food and toiletries, and every effort is made to meet individual needs too, eg special diets, baby food and nappies, pet food; as well as pointers to other sources of advice and support.
On Wednesday 8 November 2023, S6 released their stats on the number of emergency food parcels that Sheffield S6 Foodbank provided within our local community between March and September 2023.
The alarming new figures reveal that they have provided 34,524 emergency food parcels to people who couldn’t afford the essentials in Sheffield over the last six months – and 12,633 of these went to children..
