Winter Food Bank Appeal 2021

This year, with the support of local people, we've provided 16,020 meals to 1,780 adults and children in need in South Derbyshire so far. Demand is growing and winter and the festive season can be particularly difficult for people experiencing financial hardship. Your help and support is crucial at this time. Please consider making a donation today. Thank you!

Financial Donations

Financial donations help us feed individuals and families in need in South Derbyshire. People can be struggling for all kinds of reasons - fuel poverty, end of furlough, loss of jobs, higher cost of living, or other changes in personal circumstances. Big or small, a gift from you will help us make sure no-one in South Derbyshire goes hungry. 

  • £5 buys food for a child for 1 day
  • £25 buys food for a family for 3 days
  • £50 buys food for a family for 1 week

For more information on making a financial donation please visit our Donate page.

Funds will be used to support the management of the Food Bank and wider SDCVS operations.
