On Wednesday 8th May 2019, two volunteers from Rochdale Foodbank drove to Stockport to swap food which both foodbanks had an excess of for food that they were short of.
We swapped just over 500 tins of veg for an equivalent amount of Pasta Sauce.
In all we took 213.75 kg of tinned vegetables and brought back 342.50 kg of pasta sauce.
We must mentioned Rochdale Foodbanks’ gratitude to RRG Toyota for providing us with the van – without which the journey would not have been possible.

The volunteers also said that they’d be happy to do the same with other Foodbanks, should the opportunity arise.
