General information

Service offered: Food Bank. Our Opening hours have been changed recently, back to 11-00am – 12-30pm . Our satellite centre times at Branches Christian Fellowship on Wesley Street remain the same. They have wheelchair access. We have stepped access though the front door but can more easily pass food parcels at the back door on Fleece Street. At this time all exchanges are taking place at the (front) door. Clients are not coming into the body of the Foodbank. We do not offer a toilet facility for clients. Toilets are available in the near vicinity. English is the only spoken language, although we do serve the full and diverse range of clients across the borough. Email contact is the best at this time; the small volunteer team running the Foodbank are answering the telephone when they can to serve clients and agencies. Generally, calls are now answered more frequently or redirected to the email service; staffed daily by someone working from home.

Target group: Local People in Food Crisis

Area served: Local Community across Rochdale, Heywood and Middleton
