taking referrals for those in need of food, across Bury.

As a key stakeholder, we want to ensure that your agency knows about 'Food Glorious Food'- a new food bank/ drop-in resource, for Bury people.

So what will ‘Food Glorious Food’ offer people in need within our communities?

  • A drop-in food bank service - Once a week we’ll provide a drop-in service, for food bank collections, every Wednesday afternoon 1:30pm - 3:30pm, at Freedom Church, 35 Walmersley Road, Bury, BL9 5AE..
  • Home deliveries - We’ll offer a home delivery service for people with access difficulties.
  • Evening & weekend appointments - We’ll offer an evening and weekend food bank service, strictly by appointment only.
  • Sign-posting to specialist services - We’ll signpost people to specialist help and support and we’ll invite professionals along to drop-in’s, as guest speakers.They  will provide specialist expert advice and support in specific areas; such as housing, employment, benefits, debt, budgeting, health & well being.…
  • More than just bags of food - We’ll provide a welcoming, safe environment with complimentary refreshments and snacks, a friendly face and a voice of encouragement in a time of need.

 

Criteria/Guidance - our only criterias are: we only accept agency referrals, the people you refer are in need of food & they ordinarily reside in the Bury area. We will provide food for up to 4 weeks, thereafter this will need to be reviewed.

Our aim at Freedom Church, is to work alongside agencies/organisations and existing food re-distributors, who are already doing an incredible job in providing a service to the people of our Town who are experiencing poverty & food poverty. We’re committed to playing our part, in addressing the cyclical issues relating to poverty and food poverty through our food bank model.
