Harvest Appeal!

7th September 2018

We’ve had a busy couple of months and supported many local families through the summer holidays.

Our warehouse is looking very empty so now more than ever we need your support this Harvest time!

Between January and June this year we have given out 2,012 emergency food parcels supporting 4,185 people.  This is an increase of 16% compared to the same period in 2017.

The top three reasons for referral (low income, benefit delays and benefit changes) have remained consistent, although the number people referred for benefit delays has increased disproportionately reflecting the current issues many people are facing due to Universal Credit.

• If you would like to promote our Harvest appeal this year please use our Harvest Appeal Poster

• If you would like to have a collection point in your school, church, business etc. you can print our Harvest – “Collection Point Here” Poster to provide any information needed.

• For an easy-access list of food we are asking to be included in donations this season, please see our Harvest Shopping List (these could also be cut up to be given out at various locations).

• If you would like to make a monetary donation to the Foodbank please complete our Donation Form or Donate Online

Help support us with food and funds this Harvest!

West Cheshire Foodbank relies on donations of both food and money to help us provide the vital service of supporting people facing a crisis within communities across Chester, Ellesmere Port and Neston. Without your goodwill, we would really struggle to operate and that’s why your support is needed more than ever this Harvest.
