Rochdale Foodbank Coronavirus Update

Important information for our donors, referral agencies and clients in these very worrying times

Rochdale Foodbank continues to sustain the service according to our established mission, whilst protecting the health and welfare of our volunteers and clients in these challenging times.

Clients with a voucher will continue to receive bags of food according to their need. The amount will be determined as before, by the number of adults and children it is to feed.

We welcome money donations – that enables us to buy in those foods in short supply.
