Tesco collections are coming soon...

From Thursday Dec 3 until Saturday Dec 5, our volunteers will be at Tesco Handforth Dean and Portwood collecting for Stockport Foodbank.  At this time of the year we see a significant rise in the number of people needing our help, so if you are at the Tesco stores on those days and would care to make a donation can we thank you in advance!!

Food parcels for those facing tough times

It’s no fun going without life’s essentials and sadly many in our town do not have enough money to go around.  Decisions have to be made between ‘heating or eating’, going by bus or walking or putting the children first and going without yourself.

Stockport Foodbank is here to help in such times with food parcels for those who are experiencing, for example, benefit delays or changes, problems associated with a low income or the shock of a major unexpected bill.

Please call us on 0161 487 3370 if you need help.


Mr P, a Stockport resident 

“ I’m leaving my digs and am moving into a new flat with absolutely nothing.  I don’t get paid for another 7 weeks as I’ve just started a new job so the food from you is the difference between eating and starving.  Thank you so much.”


£1,000 from the Vernon Band Concert

£1,000 has been donated to the Foodbank after the Vernon Band's  brass band concert held at Hazel Grove Baptist Church.  The joint event for the Foodbank and the Furniture Station was a fantastic evening and a great success.


Brilliant Harvest donations

Food donations have been recently received from a number of Primary School Harvest Festivals with a simple message from the children, “please pass on our Harvest gifts to those in need.” We're working very closely with all our Referring Agencies to make sure that happens, thank you.



Thanks to all the local churches who have donated their Harvest Festival collections to Stockport Foodbank - rather than a massive list, please accept our grateful thanks, you know who you are!! 



At the present time we are quite 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, coffee and orange juice in particular please, thank you.  



Due to the generosity of many local stores, you can now donate to the Stockport Foodbank whilst shopping at Asda Reddish, Tesco Portwood and Handforth Dean, Sainsbury's Hazel Grove and Waitrose in Poynton, Cheadle Hulme and Wilmslow.  Collection points are conveniently located and our thanks go to the stores and of course their customers!



Every client who comes to the Foodbank is now receiving a pack of recipe cards to help with their meal preparation and understanding how to get the best from the food in their parcels.  With the help of Mossbank Homes a pack of 9 cards hads been produced and both we and our clients want to say a big thank you for Mossbank's help and support.
