Tameside East Foodbank's three centres are now open

Tameside East Foodbank is now operating from all three of its centres again to distribute food parcels to residents who need them in Stalybridge, Ashton and Dukinfield.

It will be open from 11am to 1am on Mondays and Tuesdays from St Matthew's Church on Dean Street in Stalybridge, Thursdays from 1am to 3pm at New Life Church on Hall Street in Ashton, and Fridays from 12pm to 2pm at St John's Church on Vicarage Drive in Dukinfield. 

The foodbank says there will be no access into the buildings "in order to protect our volunteers, clients and the wider community", with people instead greeted at the entrance and the team will pack up a food parcel for you and bring it to the doorway. 

People are asked not to attend if they are feeling unwell or have symptoms of Covid-19. 

There is no charge for food parcels but people need to be referred. 

Anyone who needs a referral is asked to contact Citizens Advice on 0300 330 9076 or the Tameside Council Helpline on 0161 342 8355, or speak with their health or social care professional or other support worker.

Tameside East Foodbank is continuing to appeal for help to find a new larger warehouse, as their current premises are no longer big enough.
