Manchester Central Foodbank

Manchester Central Foodbank believes no one in our community should have to face going hungry. Which is why they provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people in crisis. They’re also part of a nationwide network of foodbanks who work to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

“The foodbank was there when we really needed it, it was an absolute lifeline.”
Inspired by the Makers Raffle in Glasgow who managed to raise more than £14 000, let’s see how much money we can raise for this vital organisation and help alleviate hardship


About the charity

Manchester Central Foodbank is a charity serving emergency food to people in crisis. We work with professional referrers to support over 1000 people a month across Central, North and East Manchester with a food parcel as well as signposting support and information to get them out of their crisis.
