As-Salaam Foodbank

Providing assistance to some of the most vulnerable people in South Yorkshire

About Us

Initiated in 2015, the main objective of this project is to provide assistance to some of the most vulnerable people in the local community in South Yorkshire, irrespective of race or religion, primarily through the distribution of food parcels.

There were over 2.3 million children living in relative poverty in the United Kingdom in 2015. There were 14,670 cases of priority-need homelessness in England alone in 2015.

    About As-Salaam Foodbank

    We are pleased to introduce everyone to our own AS-SALAAM Foodbank. We distribute homemade hot meals & drinks in South Yorkshire on a regular basis. These food parcels are kindly donated by families who cook at home which are then distributed. We also purchase food items for those people that request it.

    Our intention is to seek the pleasure of Allah by acting upon the numerous teachings of the Qur’aan and sayings of his Messenger (peace & blessing be upon him) that exhort the feeding of the poor and attending to the welfare of the destitute.

    Providing for the homeless is not just a moral responsibility, it also fulfils the obligation of following in the footsteps of the Beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace & blessings be upon him).

    The prophet Muhammad (peace & blessings be upon him) said:

    “None of you truly believes until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself”.

    Our duties as Muslims are to help those who are suffering and are in need.

    We urge all those that would like to contribute towards this noble cause to contact the FoodBank directly. These items will be raised weekly and sacrificing a few pounds will not affect our weekly life. Charity money could also be used to purchase these items.

    All brothers & sisters are kindly requested to try to contribute generously so we could help all the Muslims & non-Muslims in need & fight the hunger.
