On Tuesday 11th November we hosted our second session of Food Bank training.

A group of around 25 people, some from CCF, some from elsewhere in South Ribble, are part way through three sessions of food bank training. The training is provided by Community Solutions North West and although it's focussed around being a food bank volunteer it covers a number of other aspects including: Crisis food support: a 'hand up' not a 'hand out', why use referrals and the Community Solutions network.

Our hope as a church is that out of this training we'll partner with Community Solutions to run a home delivery food bank in the Lostock Hall, Penwortham and Bamber Bridge area. In addition we plan to network with other local foodbanks to provide a collective approach to help those who are in need of crisis food support.
