West Cheshire Foobank
West Cheshire Foodbank lives by the principle that no one in the community should have to face going hungry. Something Groceries2Go firmly support.
The foodbank is part of a wider national network of food banks that provide nutritionally balanced emergency food to local people who are in need.
West Cheshire Foodbank is a charity in their own right and so it is essential they receive funding and support from the local community and beyond, to ensure that their work can continue and that they can support everyone who may need their help.
Having opened in 2012, West Cheshire Foodbank has seen an increase in those needing to utilise their help over recent years making it more important than ever before that they receive the support they need to help vulnerable members of our local community. Between April-September 2020 alone the foodbank issued 5,471 emergency food parcels within West Cheshire, supporting 2,271 children as a result.
