Foodbanks and community shops

In South Ribble there are lots of organisations providing support if you are struggling to access food.

There are many reasons why it can be difficult to get food on the table. It may be something you have experienced for a long time or it could be a short term issue because of a change in circumstances. 

Everyone should have access to good food and no one should have to go to bed hungry.

See below details of local food banks and community food shops (where food can be purchased at a much reduced price).
