New Centre to open in Reddish on April 17
Stockport Foodbank is pleased to announce the opening of it's latest Distribution Centre. In conjunction with the re:dish project in Redddish, the new Foodbank will be opening at the Bairstow Centre from Thursday April 17th. The Foodbank will be open every Thursday and Saturday from 10.30am - 12.30pm each day.
Nappies and baby wipes now available
As a result of the generosity of the Vernon Building Society, we are now able to hand out disposable nappies, baby wipes and, when available, jars of baby food to Foodbank clients. In recent months we have been told by Referring Agencies and clients alike as to how expensive these items are, and now thanks to the generosity of the Building Society this project has been launched and supplies of the items will now be regularly available to Foodbank visitors.
IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO MAKE A DONATION...
At the present time we are very well stocked with a certain number of food items, so if you are planning to make a food donation might we ask for tinned vegetables, tinned fish, tinned meat, long life milk and orange juice in particular please, thank you.
