Food bank

We have been helping out with the foodbank in Blackburne Place since May 2013


It is run by Christ Church Liverpool and we assist.


The overall organisation of most of the food banks in Liverpool is done by Frontline Church and below is a description from them of how they work.

How a foodbank works

Food is donated


Schools, churches, businesses and individuals donate non-perishable, in-date food to the foodbank. All food given out by foodbanks is donated.

‘Supermarket Collections’ are one of the main ways that food is donated: These are food drives held at supermarkets where volunteers give shoppers a ‘foodbank shopping list’ and ask them to buy an extra item or two for local people in crisis.


Food is sorted and stored


Volunteers sort food to check that it’s in date and pack it into boxes ready to be given to people in need.


Frontline care professionals identify people in need


Care professionals such as doctors, health visitors, social workers, CAB and police identify people in crisis and issue them with a foodbank voucher.


Clients receive food


Foodbank clients bring their voucher to a foodbank centre where it can be redeemed for three days emergency food. Volunteers meet clients over a cup of tea or free hot meal and are able to signpost people to agencies able to solve the longer-term problem.

Frontline foodbank also runs a rural delivery service, which takes emergency foodboxes to clients living in rural areas who cannot afford to get to a foodbank.
