How to help Rochdale Foodbank by giving food
A HUGE THANK YOU to all our supporters who continue to donate to the Food Bank.
We are facing increasing demand as the country experiences its highest inflation for 30 years. Currently we are supporting over 100 families/single people a week and we expect this to increase over the coming months. Over 90% of the food distributed by foodbanks in The Trussell Trust network is donated by the public – that’s why your food donations are absolutely vital to our ability to give everyone referred to us a balanced and nutritious three day supply of food.
The cost of living in Britain is forecast to soar even higher with increased food prices and further planned increases of around 50% to domestic energy bills. As we all experience the financial squeeze, less food is donated. People who once contributed to the foodbank now find themselves its clients, including those who are working full time, pensioners, Universal Credit claimants (5 week wait for benefits). Everything you donate is used for a family/single person in need.
If you or someone you know wants to donate and requires items to be picked up get in touch and we can arrange this for you.
Thank you for your continued support.
