Haxby Food Share Project

Logo of the Haxby Food Share Project

The Haxby Food Share Project is an initiative set up to help people in the Haxby and Wigginton area. It’s overseen by the Memorial Hall, in partnership with Haxby’s Local Area Co-ordinator from the City of York Council.


Distributing Food to Help


Every Wednesday and Friday lunchtime, the team distribute food gifted by the community, local shops, businesses and other food collection services.


If you’d like some free food or other goods to help support yourself or your family please come along and pick what you need. Everyone is welcome — no referral or voucher is needed, and no questions are asked. Hopefully it will make life a little easier.

  • When?

  • Every Wednesday between 11am and 1:30pm

  • Every Friday between 12:30pm and 2pm

  • Where?

  • In the garden at the back of the Memorial Hall in Haxby

Please come early for the widest choice of food!


 

How You Can Help


Donate Some Food or Goods


Would you like to help by donating some food and goods to the project? For example:

  • non-perishable food

  • excess produce from allotments and garden

  • cleaning materials

  • dog and cat food

You can leave your items in the collection boxes at the Memorial Hall’s main entrance. They’ll be distributed at the next session.


Alternatively, if you’d prefer to give a gift of some money to support the project you can do so using online using their Go Fund Me web page. (If you’ve paid enough tax you can use Gift Aid when doing this then, as a registered charity, they can reclaim the tax you’ve already paid on the amount you give.)

 

Volunteer


The team would also love to have volunteers who could help with one or more of:

  • collecting the donations

  • unloading in the Memorial Hall

  • laying food out on the day

  • being there to greet people during the sessions on Wednesdays

  • makes cakes or soup to serve

  • serve teas and coffees

  • help clear up

If you’d like to volunteer to help, please contact the team by emailing the team at <foodshare@haxbymemorialhall.co.uk>
