Foodbank

Today in West Cheshire there are families struggling to put food on the table. For people on low incomes, a sudden crisis – redundancy, benefit delay or even an unexpected bill – can mean going hungry. Every day, parents skip meals to feed their children and people are forced to choose between paying the rent and eating.

West Cheshire Foodbank provides emergency food to local people in crisis.

Since the launch of the Foodbank in November 2012 the financial contributions and quantity of food donated by the local communities and businesses has been truly outstanding. The warehouse stock is increasing daily and is now feeding local people who are finding themselves in difficulties. Volunteers are eagerly working in partnership with agencies collecting, sorting, stacking and issuing food to those in need. None of this would be possible without your wonderful generosity and support. Thank you.

We are also grateful for the equipment donated enabling the collection, sorting, moving and storing of food ready for distribution.

A great big THANK YOU to all the people and all the companies who have supported the Food bank

Lessons for us all….
Recently, while working in the warehouse we received a telephone call from a local primary school pupil requesting that food be picked up.
Upton Heath’s Primary School’s year 5 children, from Birch and Elm classes, under the watchful eye of Mr. Dave Johnson have been collecting food for the West Cheshire Foodbank. The classes have a core team of 6 pupils who completely run and manage the whole project including what are now becoming regular telephone calls to the Foodbank to pick up the food that has been donated by the children.

A big THANK YOU also goes to Childer Thornton Primary School for their amazing donation of 180Kgs of food collected.
