Food Bank at CCF

Developed to help people through a difficult time of genuine need, the Community Solutions North West Food Bank has delivered food to thousands of local people since the service began. We would all like to live without food poverty, that’s why the focus of our Food Bank is to support people in genuine need towards their own economic stability. As part of our Next Steps Support Service we are committed to doing everything we can, using our asset based, solutions focused model, to make sure people don’t need to keep coming back for food.

In late May 2015 we started running a Food Bank. The Food Bank service runs in parallel with our Debt Help and Job Club services and the aim and focus of these three services is to help people get themselves out of poverty.
