Have your say

A year on from its launch, volunteers say demand for Penwortham’s food bank is steadily growing.

During the last 12 months there have been more than 400 visits to the foodbank and over 8,000 items given away to the needy, at sessions which run between 9.30am and 12.30pm on Fridays at Penwortham Community Centre in Kingsfold Drive.

Organised by the town’s Churches Together group, the foodbank relies on the dedication of up to 50 volunteers and donations from schools, supermarkets and members of the community.
