Food and Cold Weather Provision

Bolton Lunches  (BL)

BL is an initiative which tackles holiday hunger by providing free packed lunches during the summer holidays – targeting children across Bolton who would normally receive free school meals.

Christmas Dinner on Jesus  (CDoJ)

CDoJ is an annually run project providing hampers to struggling individuals and families containing everything they need to make a traditional Christmas dinner – right down to crackers and party hats!

Friends of Fun Food  (FFF)

FFF helps people to cook with confidence and to plan good nutritious meals more effectively and on a budget. The project also teaches good food safety skills. The service works with Bolton at Home, the NHS and other agencies to target individuals, households and groups in need.

Bolton Food Hub

Once the pandemic struck, a number of our food related services (below), were merged into one central Food Hub service. From here, parcels are delivered to households who are suffering financial distress and are unable to collect from any of our collection points.

Local Welfare Provision (LWP)

LWP provides emergency food parcels and home energy top-ups on behalf of, and funded by, Bolton Council and Bolton at Home as a ‘one-off’ crisis response service. This link takes you to our Storehouse Foodbank page. You will find some information about LWP at the foot of this page.

This link will take you to the website of Bolton Council where you can find the online LWP application form.

Storehouse Foodbank

Working with over 100 partner organisations, Storehouse is Bolton’s main centrally located foodbank. Vouchers to access the foodbank are held and distributed by our partners with the aim of reaching all who are in crisis.

Storehouse Pantry

An evolution of Storehouse Foodbank,  our Storehouse Pantries give struggling residents in target areas, access to selected food, other household essentials and targeted support to help them address and overcome their difficulties.
