The Foodbank was set up in September 2019 to help fulfil an essential need of the community. The aim of the Foodbank is to alleviate hunger in Pendle for everyone regardless of race or religion. The Foodbank delivers food parcels, hot food, clothing, and other essentials to the most vulnerable members of our community. To date, we have delivered thousands of food parcels and meals.
The Foodbank works closely with organisations across the North West. We have an excellent relationship with these organisations and support each other in achieving our aims and objectives.
How NCM Foodbank Operates:
- Donations are received from members of the community through various means. We rely heavily on the generosity of our community.
- Food is sorted and packed into parcels by a dedicated team of volunteers who work 7 days a week
- Professional organisations help us to identify those in need. These organisations work with vulnerable people across Pendle and provide us with referrals.
- We have a dedicated team of delivery drivers who deliver the food to the homes of our service users. We deliver 7 days a week.
