Don't let children and parents go hungry this Summer

A research report from Kelloggs has revealed that during the summer holidays, when children will not be receiving free School meals, parents will skip meals to make sure that children are fed.

Stockport Foodbank has been the recipient of many large food donations and we want to get this out into the hands of those in our Town who are going to find “balancing the household budget” a bit difficult at this time. 

We are encouraging all those who work in the caring professions, social workers; nurses; midwives; children’s workers; housing officers to keep an eye open for individuals and households who will be in need during the holiday time.  If you come across people or families in need, please ensure that they receive a Stockport Foodbank voucher and encouragement to come to the Foodbank. 

If you are needing our help and are not in contact with anyone from the Council or NHS please contact the Foodbank directly on 0161 487 3370 and we'll see how we can help.

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR YOUR DONATIONS

The collections at Tesco Portwood and Handforth Dean were resounding successes and thank you to everyone who made a donation - it has made such a difference to our stock levels at the warehouse and our Centres - we're well set up now for the summer months! Thank also to Bramhall Baptist, the Churches in Bredbury, staff and customers of Barclays Bank, St Mary's CE Primary Marple Bridge, Bramhall Parkrun and the customers of al our local supermarkets.

IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO MAKE A DONATION...

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.  

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, Cheadle Hulme 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.
