Our small foodbank provides vital support for people in food poverty. On average we give out 30-40 food parcels every week, with no questions asked. There is no limit to how many parcels someone can have in a certain time period and no one is asked to prove they are deserving. As we get to know people who come regularly, we see if there are underlying issues causing them to need food parcels - such as Universal Credit problems, sanctions, homelessness, debt, utility bill problems etc. We then offer assistance with getting it sorted.
Our food bank is stocked through kind donations in our Morecambe Morrisons and Garstang Sainsbury donations bins, as well as through harvest festivals and many generous donations from the general public.
