Blackpool Food Partnership


On the 31st March 2018 Blackpool food Partnership had a change of Management. The former managing partners Methodist Action North West have stepped down to focus on their core priorities in Preston. Blackpool Food Bank was involved in the creation of the Partnership and has been the primary supplier of Food to the Partnership since inception and it seemed a logical progression for the Food Bank to take over the day to day running of the service. Over the coming weeks we will be updating this site but in the meantime everything else is continuing without interruption. If you require any information or you are a food provider in need of an increased supply please use the following numbers:

We look forward to continuing to serve you all in the weeks, months and years ahead.

Neil Reid,

Chairman of Blackpool Food Bank

Food Parcels

Although the Blackpool Food Partnership prepares and distributes food parcels to approved collection points, we are not directly involved in issuing them. To get a food parcel you need to request help through the Blackpool City Council Discretionary Support Scheme.

There are four ways of applying:

Picking Up a Food Parcel

If your request for a food parcel is approved, you will be advised to collect it from one of the locations shown in the table below, or you may be directed to a Children’s Centre.

Please Note: Food parcels can only be issued if pre-approved through the Council Discretionary Scheme - we are sorry but they can not be provided if you just turn up unannounced.
