To book a parcel, please phone or text the Food Bank number on 07479256785
Donations can be dropped off from 2-4pm. For food parcel pickups, you will be given a timeslot upon booking, this will be between 3:30-4pm.
If you would like to donate to the foodbank, you can drop off at St. Mary's foodbank during our opening hours above, use the drop off points at Morrison's or Sainsbury's in Denton or Tesco's in Haughton Green. You can also drop off any donations with the Vicar, at the Rectory (the first house after the Church Centre), or contact through the Facebook page if this isn't convenient. https://www.facebook.com/stmaryshg
We are running on a pre-booked parcels only system. If you require a parcel, the only way this can be booked is to phone or text the foodbank number. You will then be given a time slot to pick up your parcel. We cannot accept any referrals by email or contacting through the Facebook page.
A huge thank you to all who support families in the area, through donations of food. We really do appreciate all our community does to help!
