About our foodbank

Here is an introduction to our project.

Wirral Foodbank is a local charity providing emergency food to local people in crisis since November 2011.  

The Foodbank principle is based on giving a small amount of food – in our case just three days worth – to people who suddenly find themselves without any food or money to buy it; this can be for a range of reasons.

We believe that no one should go hungry and that emergency food is not the solution to poverty.  Wirral Foodbank Plus, is a foodbank funded service, provided by Citizens Advice Wirral – it seeks to address the underlying reasons why people need our support and in doing so remove the need of foodbanks in our community.

We collect and distribute non-perishable food; we are always in need of the following food items – tinned vegetables, tinned fruit, tinned tomatoes, long grain rice, pasta, pasta sauce, UHT milk and tinned/packet soup.  The majority of our food is donated by local people, without this support we could not operate.  Thank you to all who donate so generously.

If you would like to support us you can donate food at various locations, including Tesco Bidston, Tesco Bebington and Tesco Heswall, Sainsbury’s Upton, most Co-op stores and all One-Stop Shops.
