Many, many thanks to all who donated at Tesco last week. Our shelves are now full to bursting at all 4 centres. If you were thinking of donating prior to Christmas can we ask that you put it off until January when our stocks will have gone down a bit. Thank you


Words cannot convey how grateful we are for the influx of donations that we have seen in the last couple of weeks.  From the hundreds of Advent calendars to the constant stream of bags of food arriving at our centres, from company donations to the customers of Tesco, Sainsbury's and Waitrose who have so faithfully donated to our appeals, we simply say a MASSIVE THANK YOU. 

Thanks to the volunteer teams from EasiDrive who came to help in our warehouse - thanks very much folk!


Recent donations have come from HSO, Lex Autoleasing, EasiDrive, No1 Copper Pot, the customers of Tesco at Portwood and Handforth Dean, Morrisons Reddish, Hazel Grove High School, SKY, Waitrose, Marple Hall School, Ladybrook School, St Thomas' Primary, St Winifred's Primary, Little Lambs Toddler group, Vale View Primary School, St Johns C of E School, Lark Hill Primary, Hollies Pre school, Asda Reddish, Norbury Parish Church, Start Point Cafe Woodley, Romiley Primary, the Churches in Bredbury, Equity Housing, Nevill Road Primary, St Mary's & St Agnes Reddish, St Peter's, as well as scores of individuals who continue to drop off bags of all sizes!

 A MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone.

No major slow down in the use of Stockport Foodbank

Althought the press would have us believe that the economy is 'on the up', there is still no slow down in the use of Stockport Foodbank.  A new report just issued by the Trussell Trust shows over 100 people a day use the foodbanks in Greater Manchester and there is no sign of a slow down.  The full article can be read at READ MORE

Ground-breaking report released about understanding and reducing the use of foodbanks in the UK

More than half of visits to food banks due to problems with benefits or tax credits.   New research from CPAG, Oxfam, Church of England and Trussell Trust also shows that people only turn to food banks when all other coping strategies have failed.  READ MORE


Members of the Stockport Foodbank team were recently invited to perform the official opening of the new ASDA store in Reddish, Stockport.  ASDA have decided to make the Foodbank their very first charity and the 'cutting of the ribbon' was performed infront of over 400 early shoppers in the new store.  Click to read more


The Vernon Brass band, accompanied by Alan Burton, supported the Foodbank with a recent charity concert when over 300 people thoroughly enjoyed a mix of brass band and swing music.  Both the Foodbank and the Furniture Station benefitted from the ticket sales and our thanks go to the band, Alan and the Vernon Building Society for a memorable evening.


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.


Almost 300 runners have put their best feet forward over the summer to not only improve on their personal best run times, but also to raise much needed funds for Stockport Foodbank.  Our thanks to everyone who has taken part, and see you next year!

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.
