Sandbach Food Bank

13 million people live below the poverty line in the UK.  Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income.

The Sandbach Food Bank, which is run by Unity Methodist Church at Wesley Avenue, with the involvement of people from other churches, too, provides emergency food and support.

The food bank does not deal directly with the people who need to use it; they are referred  by an agency that has the specialist knowledge and skills to determine whether the need is there and can also provide other support relevant to the individual’s circumstances.

If you are aware of anyone in need of a food parcel, or if someone approaches you about getting a food parcel they should be referred on to one of these agencies.

For more information please visit the Unity Methodist Church  website. and Facebook page.

A full list of agencies is available there, but a few of the main ones are listed here for your information: The Families Centre; The Children's Centre; Plus Dane; Cheshire East Social Services; Cheshire East (Benefits) Emergencies team; Cheshire East CAB; Making Space; and Arch.

You can contact the Food Bank by email (only) at
