Community mission

# January Challenge - Supporting Sheffield food banks

Donating emergency food for local people in crisis



Description

This is a community mission, a community led session where you will meet other GoodGym members at the task. Please make yourself known to anyone in a GoodGym top when you arrive. As with all GoodGym sessions we encourage you to use the power of your legs to get there, i.e. run or walk if you can.

It's amazing how much can be achieved in just 40 minutes with 20 - 30 GoodGymers' collective efforts on one of our group runs. Illness, disability, family breakdown or the loss of a job can happen to any of us. Food banks provide emergency food to people locked into poverty.

With 20 GoodGymers' donating just a few items each, collectively we would have over 100 food items to support our local food banks.

We'll be meeting up outside the Broadfield pub to run/ walk (1mile) to donate to the Gleadless foodbank (donation location within the large Tesco on Abbeydale Road). (Plan to run/walk back to the Broadfield after)

What kinds of items do food banks need? Tins and packets of non-perishable food: - TINNED TOMATOES - PASTA SAUCES - TINNED VEGETABLES - TINNED MEAT AND FISH - TINNED FRUIT AND PUDDINGS - BISCUITS, CHOCOLATE,SNACKS - SUGAR - COFFEE - RICE - POTATOES - TEA BAGS (80s) - TOILETRIES -TOOTHPASTE, TOOTHBRUSHES, RAZORS, SANITARY SUPPLIES - SHOWER GEL, TOILET PAPER - BREAKFAST CEREALS - CLEANING PRODUCTS

Please also see this link to find out more about what they urgently need and have plenty of: https://gleadlessvalley.foodbank.org.uk/give-help/donate-food/

Note: to GG volunteers outside of GG Sheffield, due to new GG guidelines I am required to list this mission with a particular meeting point and time to encourage a collective meet up and donations. Appreciate you would nolonger be able to make it, it would be great if you could speak to fellow ggrs in your areas and set up something similar :)

This is a GoodGym group run, where we run to help a local community organisation and then run back.

New runners are welcome to GoodGym group runs - no one gets left behind. You're unlikely to be alone, hundreds of new people sign up every week.

There's a place to leave bags and a toilet at the start point, all you need to do is bring your trainers. It's free to try - get involved!
