Visiting a foodbank

You will be welcomed by volunteers who will prepare your food parcel.

“The volunteers at the foodbank were so lovely, they listened to me and made me feel human again. It was the first place I didn’t feel judged”

We know that crisis can strike anyone and we also understand how difficult it can be to think about walking through a foodbank door. That’s why our foodbank volunteers aim to make welcome everyone who comes to the foodbank with compassion, kindness and a listening ear.

Meeting your needs

Your foodbank voucher/code will be exchanged for three days of emergency food. We want to make sure that we give you the right food to meet your needs.

Preparing your food

Whilst your food parcel is being prepared, we would love to give you a warm drink and a biscuit. Unfortunately, because of the Coronavirus crisis we can’t do that, but in our hearts we will be caring and praying for you.

The welcome is different, but just as caring.

You will be required to wear a face covering, sanitise your hands and have your temperature checked and contact details recorded. This is totally secure and to ensure safety for us all.

Your food parcel will be packed into supermarket carrier bags. If you prefer to bring your own bags those can be used instead.

Practical guidance and support

Following your visit to us, if you need support beyond what we are able to give, we suggest that you contact Salford Citizens Advice on 07494 498678, 07957 162327 or Spirit of Salford on 0800 952 1000.
