Recipes range from apple crumble and bean goulash to corned beef hash burgers, peanut butter flapjacks and vegetable curry

Our thanks in particular to Wendy from Pop Up, as well as our our warehouse volunteers, for working on these dishes.

You can see the recipes they've been using here.

Shirley's Story

"Shirley works 30 hours a week and gets £9.38 working tax credit. She says people in work should be paid a living wage. Shirley ended up going to her local food bank when her rent was taken out twice from her bank account."

About the Real Benefits Street website

"Real Benefits Street is a chance for people receiving benefits – real-life experts – to tell their own stories, and show the true reality of life on benefits. Their stories challenge the myths which stigmatise those who are supported by benefits, and the assumptions lying behind the changes and cuts that are making their lives harder."

We work with about 50 different agencies across West Cheshire to identify people in crisis. A list of our Partner agencies who assess need and are registered to issue vouchers can be found here.
