It has been another busy month at Food Bank in the run up to Easter.  Lots of lovely Easter Eggs have appeared which will be a special treat for those we are supporting.
We have continued to receive donations from local supermarkets including from Co-op Lostock Hall, Tesco Extra Leyland, SPAR Walton Park and Booths Longton.  The ongoing support from you and your customers is really great.  Thank you again to Sophie - Bamber Bridge Morrisons Community Champion (pictured left) for providing much needed food including meat, ready meals and desserts as well as non-perishable items. We are very appreciative to Lindsay and the customers of Sainsburys Bamber Bridge who fill several trolleys a week for us - it's been amazing.
We continue to receive a weekly donation from Luv Preston including essential bread, milk, and fresh fruit and vegetables.  It is great to work alongside FareShare Lancashire and Cumbria, reducing food waste and redistributing to our clients. Each week we fill a car with food from their warehouse which is a real blessing. Thank you to everyone involved.  We are very grateful to Lathams The Bakers Limited in Tarleton for providing fresh pies, cakes and pastries twice a week which are a real treat for everyone who we deliver to. 
Our local community are awesome in their generosity - we have had so much donated this month!  We are also very blessed by local groups including Joshua's Joy, BAE Systems Samlesbury Shed 2, Co-op Funeralcare (one of our collection points), the Gregson Lane community, Boots UK DSP Walton Summit, Lostock Hall Community Primary School, Emma (pictured right) with a donation in honour of International Women's Day and Kentsi, Frank and their friends.

Lady with bags of food

This Easter we have asked for donations of bags containing ingredients for our clients to make an Easter meal. These can be different sizes to cater for individuals, couples or families. Please see the poster for more information.  They can be brought in any time up to 29th March & will be delivered during the Easter week. Thank you!  For more details and ideas please visit our Food Bank Facebook page.  Thank you to St Leonard's Primary School Walton-le-Dale for so many meal bags (pictured below), we are very grateful. 

School children with bagsWe have seen a rise in families and individuals needing our help in the last few weeks due to the pandemic. So although we have had an amazing increase in donations, it is very much needed and your continued support over the next few weeks; especially with the latest restrictions, will be critical to sustain the level of help.

At the Food Bank our volunteers do their best to provide for all the different needs of our clients. We have various types of bags for families, large families and single people plus those in temporary accommodation. We also try to cater for those having special dietary requirements including diabetic, vegetarian, vegan, food intolerances and halal. Well done to all the team who manage this so well! We would also like to thank all those new volunteers who have started in the last few weeks. We really welcome the extra help for the upcoming busy Christmas period.
We are currently helping around 100 individuals and families per week, so your donations whether in items or financial are very much appreciated and needed. We are registered with 'Just Giving'; if you would like to donate in this way, please press the 'Donate with Just Giving' button at the top of this page. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far especially those from the Gregson Lane Folk Club who support us regularly financially.

Emergency Appeal

White goods 1206

Over the last year, we have become aware of the desperate needs of some clients when we go out on food deliveries. In response we have set up a campaign on Just Giving for basic practical items and white goods. Please read the information on the link below and donate if you can. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far.  We are 70% towards our target which is fantastic!

Our Service

Row of bags and boxes

The purpose of our Food Bank is to provide provisions for people who are struggling to provide for themselves due to financial limitations as a result of various circumstances. Our service is designed to be a hand up, supporting individuals and families in need through engagement and support as they stabilise their financial situation. 

Two key principles in the operation of Food Bank are:

A Hand Up, Not A Hand Out – This is not just about free food – Our model is to: Engage / Assess / Support / Transform.

Home Delivery Model – Teams of fully trained volunteers deliver direct to the homes of the people needing our help.

To enable us to support our local community, we regularly need donations of non-perishable food items, toiletries, household cleaning items, pet food and other pet essentials. If you're interested in finding out how you can support our Food Bank including donating any items, please contact the team by phone or email or altenatively bring items to the collection point at the church in Ward street Monday to Thursdays, 9am - 1pm.
