Dropping off Donations?

If you are dropping off donations to us please bring them to 

St Andrews Church Hall, Newmarket Street, Mon, Weds or Fri mornings 9-12.  

Alternatively use one of our Donation points 

How we work: The Food Bank supplies emergency food parcels to people who are struggling to feed themselves or their families.  We work with local support agencies who refer people to us who are in need of food support.  We ask people to be referred each time they need a parcel.  We supply food parcels to single people and families of mainly non perishable food.  We often will also add in fresh fruit and veg, eggs and cheese when it is available.  With the organisations that we work with we try and point people in the direction of other help and support so people do not rely on us for the long term.  

If you support us, Thank you for your support.

If you are struggling to buy food for yourself or your family do ask for help either by asking a support agency for a referral or by calling us, we can then explain how to get a refferral.  A list of referrers can be found on our I need help page.


Items we are lower on for our  parcels are:

UHT Milk

Custard tins or packets


Tinned Rice Pudding 

Tinned Fruit

Tinned Veg ie sweetcorn and carrots

Porridge oats

We have plenty of tinned soup, baked beans and pasta.

Our heartfelt thanks. Together, we are able to provide much needed support to many households in Craven. 


If you are dropping off donations directly to us we are open at St Andrews Church Hall 9-12am Mon, Weds and Fri. If those times aren't convenient you can use one of our Donation points.
