OUR "PREMIER" VOLUNTEERS
A big thank you must go to the team of volunteers from Premier Inn who took time out from their sales conference to help at Foodbank. With their help we were able to carry out some much needed stock reorganisation which will be a massive help to us. Thanks very much to all of you.
12,000 MEALS DONATED BY TESCO CUSTOMERS
Tesco at Portwood set themselves an ambitious target at the beginning of 2014 and that was to collect enough food for Stockport Foodbank to provide 12,000 meals to those in need across the town. As a result of the extreme generosity of their shoppers this target was both achieved and passed. Thanks to everyone at Tesco and of course their customers too.
DONATE TO THE FOODBANK WHEN SHOPPING
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 and Wilmslow. Collection points are conveniently located and our thanks go to the stores and of course their customers!
MANY TASTY MEALS
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.
