What’s in a food parcel?

Our foodbank provides a minimum of three days’ worth of nutritionally balanced, non-perishable food. We also provide hygiene products if you need them.

When you speak to us, please tell us about your household and your needs. We know some people have limited cooking facilities, special diets and different hygiene needs. We also know that food tastes better with spices or salt and pepper, and that sometimes you really need a bit of chocolate to get you through tough times.

Dietary requirements

Our foodbank can usually adapt your food parcel to meet your dietary needs: for example, we can provide gluten-free, halal or vegetarian foods.

When we call you, a volunteer will chat to you about any special dietary requirements you have.

Hygiene products

At Stretford we can also provide basic hygiene products, including things like:

  • Soap and body wash
  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Toothpaste and toothbrushes
  • Safety razors
  • Pads, tampons, etc.
  • Deodorants
  • Nappies
