Earlier in the summer we found people were struggling queuing to get in supermarkets, So helping hands set up a temporary Fruit and Veg stall, it was a great success and people really enjoyed the fresh produce.
We have been a community food hub since March 2020, we set up in light of the COVID 19 pandemic and with the help of our local community and various local food outlets we are able to help local families with food parcels when needed.
We mainly operate in Orford, Poplars and Hulme. Our volunteers come from all over Warrington with as far as Croft. Together we make all the difference.
We have over 20 fabulous volunteers who selflessly give up their time each week to come and help, we have a team who organise the drivers routes and then pack up the hampers to suit each family. They make sure there is enough food to last at least 4 days per household, we base this on how many are in the family from single people to a family of 11.
