Food For Life

Food for Life is a ‘Community Food Hub’ providing food and essential products to local people who are struggling to make ends meet. Thanks to Big Lottery Funding a shop in York House, has been refurbished to house the Community Food Hub.
Anybody in receipt of benefits/pensions can become members of the Community Food Hub; people can sign up for membership on Tuesday mornings 11 until 12 at the Community Food Hub.
The hub runs as a ‘Community Pantry’ where members pay £3.00 pound per visit (they can also donate more if they can afford to) the number of items of shopping depends on the size of their household.

Our new address
The Depot
18 Rockwell Lane,
Thorpe Edge, BD10 9HT

Opening Times
  • Tuesdays - 10.30am - 12.30pm 
  • Thursdays - 10.30am - 12.30pm 
The Food for Life project has a Project Coordinator and has recruited a team of volunteers who have been trained up to run the Community Food Hub, help with collection of food donations and help to run Shared Table.
We receive regular donations from Fare Share, Asda, Tesco and KFC and occasional donations from Storehouse, Lidl and Poundland.
We also receive personal donations from individuals and local childcare nurseries and are trying to develop links with local schools.  St Johns Church at Thorpe Edge and Newlands Furniture Service have also set up as food collection points to support the food hub. The numbers of members access the Food Hub increase weekly so we are always looking for new sources of food and life essentials donations.
