We provide 3 day emergency food parcels to those facing tough times in Stockport. Food parcels contain a range of non perishable staple foods as well as nappies for babies and a range of hygiene items for every Foodbank client.
Clients are referred to the Foodbank by social services etc, who deem that a crisis exists in that household. A crisis occurs for many reasons, benefit changes or delay, unemployment, low income.
We also help with applications to a fund which offers fuel vouchers.
Our aim is to provide practical help to those in our community who are facing tough times, irrespective of age, gender, nationality or religion.
The funding of the Foodbank is from the voluntary and commercial sector so as to remain completely devoid of any political bias.
Our Foodbanks are run entirely by volunteers who seek to provide a listening ear and signpost clients onto other statutory and voluntary organisations for additional support.
Stockport Foodbank aims to:
- To support to those in Stockport, who are facing financial difficulties, through food parcels and other household supplies. Support will be given with an application to a fund for help with fuel bills
