Glossopdale Foodbank Donations

Due to current restrictions on the number of items people can buy, foodbanks aren't receiving anywhere near as many food donations as usual.  

In the past couple of weeks Glossopdale Foodbank had to spend a significant extra amount to replenish stocks, as they were running very low. Their funds cannot sustain spending at this level for a long period.

At present we are particularly short of:

  • 1kg or 500g packs Pasta
  • 1kg or 500g packs of rice
  • Tinned spaghetti with or without sausages
  • Tins of rice pudding 
  • Tins of hot dogs 
  • Tins of meatballs
  • Tins of fish like tuna
  • Tins of cold meat like ham or chicken 
  • Tins of any vegetable (including potatoes and sweetcorn) - particularly 
  • carrots!
  • Tins of custard
  • Tins of fruit
  • Tea bags 80 bags a box

If you are able to help, there are donation baskets in Tesco in Glossop, Marks and Spencers, Glossop Wholefoods on Norfolk Square and The Coop in Simmondley. Also, Glossopdale Foodbank Lockup will be open to receive any donations on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays between 9am and 11am. Please leave donations in a plastic bag at the door between these times, to maintain social distancing.

The Lockup is in Unit 5 on the Brookfield Industrial Estate, Peakdale Road, Glossop SK13 6LQ. From the centre of Glossop, head out on the A57 towards Manchester, turn right opposite Glossop Caravans into Peakdale Road. Follow the road round to the left at the top and turn right at the little roundabout and go through the gates. The lockup is in Unit Number 5 on the right, opposite AJC Campervan Conversions.
