Chesterfield Community Food Hut was set up at the beginning of lockdown, to support those in need, such as shielding or struggling financially. We have to date sent out over 5000 parcels to our local people in need, mostly families in financial crisis and the lone elderly. We do not charge for the food, however if able a donation is gratefully received. We have no criteria, for one simple reason, access to food is a basic human right and I will forever support this. We receive such amazing response from the people of Chesterfield, local businesses and Supermarkets, providing us daily with donations of food. We are running on bare minimum volunteers, the different roles are anything from packing the parcels, stocking the hut with donations, leaflet dropping, delivery driving, shopping, admin, the list goes on. We are a friendly, safe and welcoming place should anyone need us, we are based at Monkwood Community Room, Monkwood Road, Dunston, Chesterfield, S41 8DG.
We are open Mondays: 10am-4pm
However if these hours do not suit there is always something an amazing volunteer can be making a difference by doing!
