EAST YORKSHIRE FOODBANK 

Over 27,600 people live below the poverty line in East Riding of Yorkshire. We provide 3 days' emergency food and support to local men, women and children in crisis. Our vision is to ensure that no-one in East Riding of Yorkshire has to go hungry.All of our food is generously donated by people in the local community (schools, businesses, churches and individuals).
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender and dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • Over half the Board have joined recently

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
