“We’re a local charity helping local people with the support of the local community.”
Food poverty is a real problem in our community.
Some local people don’t have enough to eat. Often, they have to make hard choices; keep warm or feed themselves. There’s not enough money for both.
Volunteering at the Foodbank is without doubt one of the most fulfilling things I've ever done in my life. Being a frontline service lets us see the very real difference we are able to make to the lives of people in Stockport, thanks to the generous support of other local people. It is both deeply rewarding and emotionally challenging, and often both simultaneously.
Meet Our Brinnington Volunteer Phil
Phil has been involved with Chelwood for over nine years. He came to help and discovered he has a real passion for helping others and engaging in supporting our clients, particularly at our Brinnington facility.
He collects the weekly stock for delivery to our foodbank clients. He represents the foodbank at awareness events and fundraisers and food collections.
We are so fortunate to have a committed volunteer like Phil. He gives his time to engage and encourage others to make a difference in the community.

Churches Together Cheadle Hulme
To comply with social distancing regulations, they came up with a great idea: Car Boot Drop-offs!
The churches do amazing work each week collecting, sorting and packing food donations ready to be distributed to local people.
Thank you so much for the support that you provide to our foodbank!
Helping Hands Bramhall
These Foodbank Heroes dressed up to enable Drive-by Donations and Roadside Collections. Week in and week out they tirelessly planned routes for coordinated street collections, whilst bringing fun to the various pockets of Bramhall.
Helping Hands Bramhall raised over £7,500!
We cannot thank you all enough. You really are amazing community champions!
Dave DoubleDecks Dance Floor Fillers
During Lockdown, local DJ David Hird took his talents to Facebook Live with his amazing Dance Floor Fillers to raise money for Chelwood Foodbank PLUS. What a brilliant idea.
Playing music for 7 nights, he raised over £5,000!
Thank you Dave DoubleDecks!
