Cheshire Streetwise Foodbank needs funding to keep the cupboards filled and families fed during these difficult times. Streetwise are a local community project working in the very heart of the community, listening to their needs and putting plans into action to provide the right support. Cheshire Streetwise has been running since 2013, providing a voice for the people in our community who may well go unheard without this support. They provide advocacy, counselling and practical food for those who are struggling. We listened to what was needed and matched that provision for them. Run by volunteers who collect waste food from various outlets, and collect donations from Tesco stores customers. This funding will ensure we can provide balanced nutritious food parcels and meals throughout the year

What we'll deliver:

  • Foodbank in 2 places
  • Toiletries for families
  • Basic clothing for families

Why it's a great idea:

Nutritious and balanced food parcels, plus toiletries and clothing for individuals and families struggling with current increases in services. *Families with children *Individuals on low income *People with long term illnesses *People who have lost income, jobs, family members through COVID-19

Steps to get it done:

  • Purchasing nutritious food to compelement donations, ensuring food parcels have balanced/necessary items

May encourage community values and supporting each other in difficult times
