Thank you all!

It's that busy time of year again when the doorbell seems to never stop ringing and we are amazed with the generosity of our local community, supermarkets and businesses.  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, Waitrose & Partners Capitol Centre, Asda Clayton GreenLady and gentleman with food donation, Spar Lostock Hall and Spar Walton Park.  In addition we have also had donations from Morrisons Deepdale dropped off by the Scots Guards Association- Preston Branch which is really helpful. Co-op Lostock Hall regularly donate perishable goods under their Foodshare scheme (manager Adam pictured here with one of our volunteers). Sainsburys Bamber Bridge as well as continuing to support us with customer donations have also placed collection buckets and tubs on the tills for us over the Christmas period.  We have also been chosen by the Bamber Bridge Morrisons Community Champion for their Community Giving Tree.  We are overwhelmed with the support from you all.
We're really grateful to the continued support of Luv Preston for their weekly donation of fruit, veg & bread and also appreciate the twice weekly donation from Lathams The Bakers Limited in Tarleton for providing fresh pies, cakes, pastries and bread.   
This month we have also had the donations and Christmas treats and gifts from Yodel Preston, Katy's Kitchen and Outside Catering, the team at Footprints Child Care Ltd, Our Lady and St.Gerard's RC School, All Saints Church Higher Walton, Stanley House Nursery, Marina Grove Street Market and Tombola, and Higher Walton CE Primary School.  We're thrilled that Bamber Bridge FC are going to be collecting for our food bank over the next couple of weeks leading up to their Christmas Jumper Day!  We had a lovely surprise from from Skipton Building Society Preston Branch for their very generous donation of £250! We are grateful to Donna for arranging this and dropping off the cheque (pictured right).People presenting a cheque
As always our church congregation and local community have continued to bring donations to our church building of much needed essentials from our shopping list (see above).  All donations are gratefully received and make a huge difference to our supplies.  We are so grateful that we are part of a community that are so willing to support others in their time of need. 
We continue to work alongside FareShare Lancashire and Cumbria to reduce food waste and redistribute it to our recipients. Each week we fill a car with food from their warehouse which is amazing! Thank you to everyone involved at Fareshare that work really hard and to our collection volunteers including Preston Community Transport.

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.
