 Buy top quality bread flour 

from St Mary’s

and

for families across Sheffield 

This is the deal

 

 We will provide 

 top quality bread flour 

 from Hukins in 2.5kg bags at cost price. 

 You make a donation to fund 

 the provision of emergency food. 

 50% of the donation goes to St Mary’s food  delivery scheme, and 50% to support local   food banks.

Why do we need to do this?

The Covid crisis is a complete disaster for families

who were already on the breadline.

They have lost their jobs, their kids are at home without school meals and limited public transport means they can’t get to the supermarkets.

 

Families who were getting by are suddenly in need of food to help them get through this crisis. Demand at Foodbanks has increased by 300% since the lockdown started.

BreadforSheffield is a fundraising initiative, allowing St Mary's to respond to this need by providing nutritious food boxes to families all over Sheffield.

 

 Our emergency food parcels   are delivered to over 260   addresses each week

 About St Mary's response 

 to the Covid Crisis 

We believe that wasting food is a scandal. Throwing away good food is bad for the economy, for the environment and for the wellbeing of people who are on the breadline.

 

So before the crisis we were working with local volunteers to use surplus food to make community meals in six locations across the city where people are living in deprivation. We also ran a community café based solely on surplus food and a conference and catering business.

When the virus struck we quickly changed our operations to meet the new levels of food poverty in the city. George our delivery driver spends his days driving round the city picking up surplus food from supermarkets and from the FareShare warehouse.

 

Our chefs use the short life or wholesale packed food to make 350 delicious frozen meals each week. The rest of the food goes in our food boxes along with extra fruit and vegetables that we buy in.

Each week we feed more than 600 people, we take tonnes of surplus food out of the waste stream and we keep our chefs employed. What’s not to like?
