 Volunteer bbq 0821We have wanted to thank our amazing volunteers (pictured below right) for all their help in the last 2 years particularly through the difficult times of the pandemic.  So we had a fantastic barbecue on bank holiday Monday as a bit of a celebration of the food bank achievements and to say a special 'Thank You'! We also looked at our delivery statistics and so far this year we have made over 6550 deliveries!  This included 8785 bags of food which enabled families to make nearly 150,000 meals.  These statistics are staggering and we are so grateful to donors and volunteers for all your help.  We couldn't have done it without you!
Lady with trolley of foodAgain this month, we really appreciate the continued support from our local supermarkets. We have received donations from them and their customers including Booths Country Longton, Tesco Extra Leyland, Co-op Lostock Hall, Sainsburys Bamber Bridge, Waitrose & Partners Capitol Centre and their customers' have continued to provide several trolley loads each week.  Jo, Community Champion Asda Clayton Green donated a trolley load of food specifically from our notice board shown here with her colleague Niki.   
We're really grateful to the continued support of Luv Preston for their weekly donation of fruit, veg & bread.  We are also appreciate the twice weekly donation from Lathams The Bakers Limited in Tarleton for providing fresh pies, cakes, pastries and bread.  Thanks also to staff at Yodel for an amazing food bank donation! 
Lady with plumsAs always our local community have continued to pop into our church building, donating much needed essentials from our shopping list (see above). We had a lovely fresh donation of plums from Lynette and Shaun straight from their tree - thank you so much.  Scots Guards Association - Preston Branch brought in another large donation from Morrison's Deepdale (pictured below left) which was gratefully appreciated.  We've also had much needed donations of pet food which is great as we have a number of clients with pets and really appreciate your support in this way.
We are proud to work alongside FareShare Lancashire and Cumbria to reduce food waste and redistribute it to our clients. Each week we fill a car with food from their warehouse which is such a blessing! Thank you to everyone involved at Fareshare that work really hard and to our collection volunteers too!

Our Service

Row of bags and boxes

The purpose of our Food Bank is to provide provisions for people who are struggling to provide for themselves due to financial limitations as a result of various circumstances. Our service is designed to be a hand up, supporting individuals and families in need through engagement and support as they stabilise their financial situation. 

Two key principles in the operation of Food Bank are:

A Hand Up, Not A Hand Out – This is not just about free food – Our model is to: Engage / Assess / Support / Transform.

Home Delivery Model – Teams of fully trained volunteers deliver direct to the homes of the people needing our help.

To enable us to support our local community, we regularly need donations of non-perishable food items, toiletries, household cleaning items, pet food and other pet essentials. If you're interested in finding out how you can support our Food Bank including donating any items, please contact the team by phone or email or altenatively bring items to the collection point at the church in Ward street Monday to Thursdays, 9am - 1pm.
