Essential Food, Care and Support, a listening ear...
The Church of England in Wythenshawe continues to support initiatives tackling food poverty and holiday hunger. Our main activities for 2022/23 are:
A Hub for Wythenshawe Food Bank
We are part of the Wythenshawe Food Bank Network and our Community Development Worker is a trustee of the charity which helps us to have a strategic voice to share our experiences.
Our food banks are open at St Richard's on Tuesday mornings 9.15-10.15am and at St Luke's on Saturdays 11.00am-12.00noon.
If you or someone you know needs an emergency food parcel you will find a list of referral agencies and places where you can get a voucher here or you can contact Louisa on 07476305947
The Bread and Butter Thing (TBBT)
TBBT provides weekly groceries at a fraction of supermarket prices through a membership scheme. We will always try and give you some fruit and veg and something for your cupboards and fridge and we are slowly building our supply. Save over £20 a week on your shopping.
Send a text to 07860 063 256 to get your first delivery free. More information about TBBT is available here.
Holiday Breakfast Clubs
Traditionally we have provided free breakfast, crafts and sports across our Team Churches during the school holidays. This has had to change this year due to the risk of transmitting COVID-19. You can find out more about Breakfast at home here.
The Wythenshawe Team can’t do any of this important work without you. We can only do it because of your generous donations of food, time, skills and money. All contributions are valuable to us. If you want to know more about our work or would like to get involved please get in touch.
