About our foodbank

Here is an introduction to our project.


Our foodbank is a project that was founded by Christ Central Manchester church but is now a charity in it’s own right.  It is supported by local churches, businesses and the community, working together towards minimising hunger in our local area.

Salford foodbank has just three part-time employees.  Iain Wight, Foodbank Manager: Mervyn Gledhill, Distribution Centres Co-ordinator and Emma Rapley, Warehouse Co-ordinator.

But we have teams of volunteers working five days a week, collecting food, sorting it and distributing it to our Centres throughout Salford.

Our HQ and warehouse at Kansas Avenue is usually available for queries or donations from 10 am to 1 pm, but please call ahead on 0161 637 2120.

We are currently operating seven Distribution Centres at Salford Loaves and Fishes, St Philips Chapel Street, Swinton Gateway,
Broughton Hub and at St Andrews Church and Mustard Tree in Eccles and Bethany Family Worship Centre in Little Hulton.
