West Cheshire Foodbank appreciate the commitment and understanding of local people.

For 4 years, they have managed to sustain a consistent increase in demand for crisis food.

Since January 2016, food donations have increased by 6% but during that time, there has been a 25% increase in need for emergency food.
Further, sanctions and benefit delays mean that increasing numbers of people need vouchers which extend the provision for up to 4 weeks supply of food.

Whilst the 'Still Hungry' report endeavours to convey the seriousness of the situation, there is a current concerned over the ability to sustain an emergency provision throughout this summer.

Please can you help, the following food items are urgently needed:
Boxes 80 Teabags
100g coffee
Rice Pudding
Pasta Sauce
Milk
Juice
Tinned Meat

A Donations box is located inside St Oswalds Church, so you don't even have to drive to Chester, to help..
