Helping the food banks

Tang Hall Community Centre and York Food Bank are both helping local people with food parcels. Here’s how you can help them to help your neighbours:

1. Donate Money

A donation of £25 buys a food parcel for a family of four*, though any amount would very welcome. And you can donate through to either effort through these links. When donating to Tang Hall Community Centre, please mention “FOOD” in the message.

* Source: York Food Bank. Rough figures, it varies with availability, of course.

2. Volunteer.

You can volunteer to help with food distribution at Tang Hall Community Centre. They need people to help at the centre, or deliver food either by vehicle, bike or on foot.
