Welcome to the Bare Necessities Website


A warm welcome to our Website.

I’ve been the Chair since April 2013, about a year after the Food Bank was established.  I feel very privileged to be in this position, especially as it gives me the opportunity to champion our Volunteers, they are doing a fantastic job.  If you want to know more about volunteering, please get in touch.

Over the last year the number of Food Banks across the country grew significantly and the number of people needing emergency food tripled.  This reflects our own experience in Glossopdale.  We wish that we didn’t need Food Banks, but until we can close them we will do our very best to help everyone who is experiencing food poverty.

We always need food and funds.  We really appreciate the support of local people, businesses, local Schools, High Peak Borough Council and Derbyshire County Council.  If you can donate, we are really grateful.  If you can give from £2.00 a month to keep us going, that would be wonderful.  You will find a standing order form by clicking here. Thanks and all good wishes,
