Quotes from people we have helped and the agencies working with the Foodbank

"We are glad to be part of the initiative which has really taken off, thanks to the hard work of yourself and all the volunteers. It has been such a great help to so many children and families with whom Wirral Council is involved,"

"Your service has been a lifeline to so many families."

"The single mum who had been left with no money and no food after her children had been removed from her burst into tears when out worker arrived with the food. She hadn't eaten since the day before."

"The other single mum with the little boy was also overwhelmed and when the worker said it was just a small thing to tide her over, said "no, it is a small thing to you but it s a big thing to me"

We rely on food donations to feed local people in crisis. From packets of pasta to tins of tomatoes please give what you can. Could you donate in-date non-perishable food from our shopping list? Read more
