Food Parcels Delivered in November 2016 **38** Thankyou All for your hard work!
Feeding Pendle & Beyond is the name of our Mobile Foodbank. We started the project by delivering food parcels to Accrington based Maundy Relief in the summer of 2012. A month later we did our first food collection from several mosques in the Pendle area. The long life non-perishable food was donated to St Phillips, Christchurch and Salvation Army.
In April 2013, we launched as an independant food bank working with local agencies such as YMCA, Colne Open Day Centre and Safe Space, Nelson delivering between 20 and 30 food parcels a month. We were delighted to become an official food bank in July 2014 working in partnership with care and urgent needs at Lancashire Council. We are currently delivering over 50 food parcels a month to struggling individuals and families in the Pendle area.
Our Project has been featured in the local and national media:
