About our foodbank

Here is an introduction to our project.


Our foodbank is a project that was founded by Christ Central Manchester church in 2012, 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 a small management team led by Foodbank Manager Emma Rapley.

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

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

We are currently operating seven Distribution Centres at St Philips Chapel Street, in Salford:  Emmanuel Centre, Langworthy;  St Andrews Church in Eccles: Wharton & Cleggs Lane Church in Little Hulton, and also three Salford council facilities, Swinton Gateway, Broughton Hub and Walkden Gateway.

We are hugely grateful to these Churches, Community Hubs and Salford City Council for the amazing support they give to the work of Salford Foodbank in our work to support the most vulnerable in our community.
