Since 2013 we have operated in the Knottingley area from Ropewalk Methodist Church, providing 1,714 three-day emergency food supplies given to people in crisis last year. Our foodbank was born out of community groups working together towards stopping hunger in our local area.

Trustees play a vital role by ensuring that we are meeting the demand for our services, providing help and support to people in crisis in the local community, as well as providing strategic direction for the charity.
