Team City Grab Help Out at S6 Foodbank!

5th September 2022

To raise awareness for ‘National Foodbank Day’, local food delivery platform City Grab, spent the morning volunteering at Sheffield charity, S6 Foodbank.

S6 Foodbank, who have 11 sites across Sheffield, help families and individuals currently struggling to deal with the issues currently going on in their lives. They also provide services for those dealing with debt, struggling to find shelter, and offer general advice from specialists who are on hand for a chat about whatever it is those concerned need help dealing with.

The foodbank provides food packages for around 60,000 people each year, with 400+ families currently requiring their support. As this figure is likely to increase as we head towards Christmas, the charity needs their community’s support more than ever.

Sacha Skinner, Marketing Manager at City Taxis and City Grab, said:

“It was extremely humbling visiting S6 Foodbank and not at all as the team had expected.

“The impressive size of the food store highlighted just how many hundreds of people the foodbank supports each week, and the resources required to keep the foodbank going.

“It was great to meet the fantastic team there and learn about all the services offered by the foodbank, as well as some manual labour helping to sort and pack the food!”

Chris Hardy, Foodbank Manager at S6 Foodbank, said:

“As the need for Foodbanks continuing to increase due to the cost of the living crisis, it’s great to have City Grab/City Taxis on board as a partner.

“With the help of City Grab/City Taxis, the people of Sheffield won’t go hungry this winter.”

How can you help? Volunteer opportunities are open to anyone and is welcomed at all S6 Foodbank’s 11 city-wide sites. A wide range of supermarkets across the city have drop bins for food and product donations, or head across to S6 Foodbank’s just giving page by following the link: https://bit.ly/3wQb1Kz
