Stannington Foodbank

Stannington Foodbank provides food and welfare packages to local residents.  If you are in need of a support package please go along to Stanwood Methodist church at 12 noon on a Monday.  

We are open every Monday 12-1pm and are now operating 'cafe style' which means people can sit and chat enjoying a hot drink and biscuits while they wait for their food parcels to be made up for them. This encourages a community spirit and gives us a chance to chat and get to know our customers better. The numbers of people attending the FoodBank have increased slightly in recent months, we are currently supplying food to 20-30 households which means 40-45 people are receiving food from us.

If you feel you are in need of a food parcel or know of anyone who needs help then please come to the Foodbank where you will receive a warm welcome. For any further information either speak to Alison Cook or one of the church wardens or speak to Viv Willox who is the Christ Church liaison for the Foodbank. 

Foodbank Donations

If you are able, please donate to the food bank. Up-to-date items currently needed and details of how to donate are provided below, and on their Facebook page.

The Foodbank has been well supported by Morrisons over the past years. However, due to changes in staffing Morrisons are no longer able to offer this support. This has two impacts on our Foodbank, firstly it isn't possible to drop food there for our food bank. You can still buy there but please drop off in one of the alternative locations listed on the facebook page. Secondly this has a serious impact on the Food Banks income and we are relying more on individuals donations so your donations are all the more valuable to us. Thank you for all your support. 

For up to date information about donation points please check the Foodbank Facebook page or the Christ Church Facebook page. 

If you would like to volunteer at the Foodbank please get in touch via this website or our Church facebook page.
