Big or small, every gift you give helps transform lives.

Donate online – coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis appeal

More than ever we need your support. We are sadly seeing increased demand across the Stretford, Urmston and Old Trafford area and only expect this to get higher as more and more people have to apply for Universal credit and need financial support during the coronavirus pandemic.

We have seen a drastic reduction in food donations as people’s shopping habits are changing and many of the community groups that collect food for us have had to stop their activities.

We need your urgent help to fund the purchase of food that is required to fill this gap. You can donate online through the Stretford Foodbank coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis appeal on crowdfunder. Thank you for your support in these difficult times.

Poem

It was on Thursday morning, the kids were still in bed,
I went into the kitchen, the family to be fed
We’ve ample empty boxes, in the cupboard, that’s so bare,
The fridge seems also empty, more ice than milk or fayre
No Weetabix or cornflakes, no muesli, fromage frais
The posh stuff’s just a dream to me, maybe another day

And as the little angels sit closely on one chair
My hands ring out in anger, I’ve nothing but despair.
Then from behind the Flora, I see a solitary egg
I’m sorry kids it’s all I have, you’ll have to share instead.
Then off to school the kids they go, my hunger pangs increase
I’ll have a glass of water,  and hope the pains decrease.

So spare a thought for those in need until you’ve worn their shoes.
Don’t judge, condemn, just show His love and make a donation, please!
