help provide emergency food boxes
for families across Sheffield
Thank you for being part of Bread for Sheffield. Through it we have raised £9,000 to provide support for people in food poverty during the crisis.
We will be closing Bread for Sheffield on August 28th and so last orders will be August 25th
However we will be continuing our work to respond to the long term social impacts of Covid. Please follow us on Facebook "TimeBuilders Sheffield"
We are pleased to announce the closing of Bread for Sheffield, our fundraising campaign.
The donations given through BreadforSheffield, has allowed us to combine the efforts of volunteers and surplus produce to deliver food parcels of great quality to families across Sheffield for the last 18 weeks.
Each week we have delivered to over 250 families.
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?
