York Foodbank

Accessible Arts & Media have been running inclusive arts and media learning projects in York since 1982. They include accessible music-making groups, singing and signing choirs, opportunities for learning-disabled young people and adults to train as workshop leaders and specialist creative and therapeutic sensory activities.

The people who take part in their projects include disabled young people and adults, people living with dementia and people with mental ill-health. They help them develop the confidence and skills to try new activities, make new friends and have more of a say in the things that matter to them.

And everyone has lots of fun along the way!

Accessible Arts and Media worked with us on our third cookbook, Secret Dishes From Around the World 3. They commissioned the fantastic artist Adam Highton to collaborate with a art group and together create a digital painting for the project.

York Foodbank is an organisation seeded by the Trussell Trust that provides invaluable services to the local community. They help individuals and families in crisis, through the provision of emergency food supplies. 

We worked with York Foodbank during our 2021 Reverse Advent Calendar Campaign.  The project encouraged people to donate a specific item to their local food bank  every day leading up to Christmas. We created a resource hub on our website with information about food banks across the country and promoted our free donation tracker to help people support their local food bank.
