Christmas at Widnes Foodbank

From our Project Co-ordinator

The season of goodwill is a time of gifts, fun, family and friends and good food.

Sadly, there are people in our area that cannot afford even the basic meal, let alone the additional costs that Christmas brings. Widnes Foodbank continue to provide emergency food to our community throughout the festive period and we add a few lovely surprises too.

Have a look at our Christmas list, donate if you can and follow us on social media to see how the donation of one small item can make a huge difference to those that live in hidden food poverty.

The Trustees, myself, and all the volunteers at Widnes foodbank would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and wish you all a Merry and Peaceful Christmas.
