Food for families

Emergency food Help

We offer an emergency service, providing food parcels for those in an acute emergency and don’t have the means to buy food. The service is unable to provide long term or ongoing support.

Before approaching us, people will have already attempted to access other services, such as The Wirral Food Bank or have utilised one of the social supermarkets in the area. These offer food freely or accept money on a ‘pay as you can’ basis. There are sites at:

Mendell Primary School, Bromborough (Pantry open to all members of the community not just parents)
