Food banks

As a response to Covid-19, we are providing additional support for Manchester residents.

If you need some support, or advice on which food bank best suits your needs, please contact our helpline on 0800 234 6123.

Lines are open Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, and Saturday 10am to 2pm.

If you're struggling to feed yourself or your family, there are foodbanks across Manchester.  

Most of them operate on a voucher system, and for this you will need a referral from either your GP, a social worker or health visitor, or Citizens Advice.

But there are both referral and non-referral foodbanks. Find your nearest online at www.trusselltrust.org or www.greatertogethermanchester.org
