This website has been created with the Volunteers, Stakeholders and Trustees in mind. It's purpose is to be a quick reference point for the key priorities and services that the Wirral Foodbank provides.
We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. Our main Wirral Foodbank website provides more information on this service.
Please use the CONTACT page should you have any suggestions for content or improvement.
Wirral Foodbank Mission Statement
The Wirral Foodbank is an independent Charitable Incorporated Organisation and part of the Trussell Trust network.
We draw our inspiration from these verses from the New Testament:
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” – Matthew 25:35-36
To end hunger and poverty in the Wirral and beyond.
To relieve persons in the Metropolitan Borough of Wirral who are in conditions of need, hardship or distress by supplying food and in such other ways as the Trustees from time to time think fit.
The Wirral Foodbank is a charity founded on Christian principles. We welcome people of all faiths and none as both volunteers and clients.
The Wirral Foodbank is committed to community built on diversity, tolerance, cooperation, and mutual respect; we want to contribute to society and demonstrate social responsibility. Our values are important to us, and we aim to live them out in all areas of our work.
We are passionate about what we do and the difference it makes in the lives of others
We are compassionate: we give selflessly and put others before ourselves
We hold ourselves accountable: we acknowledge and assume responsibility for actions, decisions, and consequences – as individuals and as an organisation.
We are innovative, with the ambition to pursue new and creative ideas that have the potential to change lives for the better.
We empower and encourage staff, volunteers and clients to take the initiative and achieve their best, in a safe environment where mistakes are viewed as learning opportunities.
“Restoring dignity, reviving hope.”
“Helping local people in crisis.”
