In Worsley and Eccles South I have been part of setting up a project called the Salford Families in Need Meals project. Over the last year we have raised funds to enable a food club to be run every week in partnership with the social food charity, The Bread and Butter Thing. We are working together to we try to help people and families to get by.

 

Our food distribution hub, run from Barton Moss Primary School every Wednesday, provide weekly groceries at a fraction of the high street prices through a membership scheme. Here’s some more information about how The Bread and Butter Thing membership works:

 

  • The hub will try and always give you something for your cupboards and fridge. A typical order is three shopping bags, one of fridge goods, one of cupboard goods and one full of fruit and veg, this costs £7.50

 

  • We get supplies from the stuff that you hear about in the news going to waste, it comes from supermarkets, factories and farms.

 

  • We work just like a veg box scheme. Veg box schemes give you great fruit and veg that is seasonal and local, there’s very little choice in what you get but everything you get will be fresh.

 

  • There are so many reasons why food doesn’t get to the supermarkets at different times of the year. We take what is available and make up food bags for our members. Like veg boxes, we will give you whatever is available at the time and that tends to change daily.

 

  • Because we don’t let you choose what is in the parcel, we can afford to provide things really cheaply, we believe cheaper than you will find anywhere else. AND, because it’s a bit of a new thing, we let you sign up and try us out for free.

 

To find out more information about this service text your name and ‘Barton Hub’ to 07860 063 304.

 

There are also other food clubs and food banks which also provide support for those struggling with the cost of living and needing help with food. You can find out more information below or you can contact me for a referral to a foodbank if you are in a crisis.
