The Bolton Food Hub was set up in April 2020.
We create and deliver a large number of food parcels to households who struggle because of lack of access to supermarkets or reduced income.

It has now become the centralised place for our food projects to operate from. Volunteers sort donations, pack the food parcels ready for deliveries to be made to people’s homes. Referrals can come through a number of ways including Local Welfare Provision, Storehouse Foodbank and Storehouse Pantries.
We also hold poverty lessons for school children in years 5 and 6 in order to allow children to explore poverty and how it impacts Bolton. In June/ July 2022 we held 13 lessons for 8 schools with 3 schools opting to do the digital version in their classrooms.
The Bolton Food Hub has been made possible through our partnership with FareShare, Bolton Council, Bolton at Home, Seddon Construction, Greggs, Greenhalghs, Carrs , Warburtons, Bolton CVS and many others within the ‘Bolton Family’.
