Foodbank Collections at Pure Cafes

Posted on the 2nd November 2020

School holidays are over but child food poverty is not. Many children – and adults – are still going hungry.  That’s why Pure cafes are now drop off points for foodbank collections. We are collecting for two local organisations:

  • Our Stockport cafes are collecting for  FRESH.
  • Our Rochdale cafes are collecting for Oldham Foodbank.

FRESH provides a weekly take-home bag of food for children at seven schools in the least well-off areas of Stockport. It supports up to 1,000 local children.

Oldham Foodbank  provides nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people in crisis.

Where You Can Donate

Both organisations always need food donations. If you wish to help, please take any non-perishable foods to our drop-off points at:

Collection points are clearly marked in each cafe.

Community Counts

Last week our cafes gave out 120 free lunches for children on half-term. At the same time, dozens of customers have bought “pay it forward” post-it notes enabling anyone feeling down or alone to have a free coffee on them.  We urge anyone in need of a lift for any reason to accept one.

The care is there.

Foodbank collections are another simple way we can all pull together.

Thank you
