In 2013 Gateway Food Bank, was the first to open in Barnsley, feeding 2058.  In 2014 the Food Bank fed 1725 people (the decrease was due to a number of other Food Banks opening across BMBC).  

For a political angle, read Barnsley's MP Michael Dugher's blog, after his visit to the Gateway Foodbank.

Scroll down his blogs to 11 May 2013.
