Charity description

Widnes Foodbank logo
Part of the Trussell Trust Foodbank Network, Widnes Foodbank provides a crucial lifeline to local people in crisis by supplying them with 3 days worth of nutritionally balanced food.

We rely on generous donations of non-perishable food from the public. Food can be donated through schools, supermarket collections and churches.
No one at Widnes Foodbank is paid. We depend upon public donations of money towards operating costs for the Foodbank, which is operated completely by volunteers. Money raised helps us to pay for heating, electricity, office broadband and calls and other essential maintenance costs including statutory training requirements.

Those in crisis can be referred to us by a participating referral agency. Once a 'client' arrives at a distribution centre, a Foodbank volunteer meets with them over a cup of tea and cake to make up a food parcel for them. We are also able to talk with clients and signpost them to other agencies for long-term support.

Charity No: 1155130
