“I chose the Welcome Centre for my “Day to make a difference” as I felt I could get really involved. It was really gratifying see all the help and donations that shops and people contributed”

“It really opens your eyes to see how many families and individuals need these resources. I was touched by the people who volunteer and how much care they put in to every single parcel”

“It was amazing to see the great work the centre does for vulnerable people and families. I hadn’t put much thought into all of the logistical challenges of running such an operation that needs to feed people not only a balanced diet, but one that caters for their individual needs”


“We work with the Welcome Centre as we do with many organisations because we believe that this is our social responsibility. We seek to use any food that we cannot sell but which is fresh and safe to eat to provide nourishment to any needy person. As a company we have always been involved in our communities at a local and UK wide level. In the last few years we have put a great deal of emphasis and energy into trying to make sure that we provide charities and good causes with as much support as we can.”

Community Cards have been working hard to fundraise on behalf of the Welcome Centre since October 2010 and by mid 2017 we had donated a staggering £11,700 .This has enabled them to buy much needed stocks of food and household items and to feed local people in crisis. We have successfully set up many outlets to sell cards within the community along with 7 groups of volunteers within church and community settings who use recycled cards to make new cards for sale. Find out more on www.communitycards.org.uk and please follow us on Facebook


At Sainsbury’s Shorehead, we want to help make a positive difference to our community and one of the ways we can do this is by supporting the work of local groups such as “The Welcome Centre” in Huddersfield. We are proud to be able to supply them with freshly baked bread from our in store bakery and other household items from the store. We also operate a highly successful and very popular food donation service for our customers to use to support them in their work.”  Tim Bagshaw—Deputy Manager Sainsbury’s Shorehead

M&S EST 1884

Through our partnership with Neighbourly.com, M&S Huddersfield Simply Food has been working with Welcome Centre Food Bank since 2015 to redistribute surplus food to those locally that can benefit from it. We are proud to support The Welcome Centre, which coordinates each and every food donation we provide to ensure that surplus food goes directly to those in need in our immediate community in Huddersfield. We hope that the scheme continues to have a positive effect on people locally. 


Morrisons in Huddersfield have been working with the Welcome Centre since January 2017 as part of their wider company Unsold Food Charity programme. The programme makes sure that good food in Morrisons stores never goes to waste and is instead redistributed to local community groups for social benefit. So far, Morrisons has donated over 2.3 million products to local community groups in the first year of the programme. The Welcome Centre collects from the Huddersfield store three times per week, using unsold food to provide food parcels for those local people in need.

“We’re proud to support the work of the Welcome Centre. It’s great that they are able to utilise Morrisons unsold food items to really help local people in our community who are in crisis.”  Debbie Creaser, Community Champion, Morrisons Huddersfield.
