Take action to tackle food poverty

From 13-19th October 2014 we are asking individuals and businesses in Greater Manchester to Tackle Food Poverty Together. There are many organisations that could benefit from your support during the Tackling Food Poverty awareness week and all year round.

We are working alongside two leading charities who are already tackling food poverty across Greater Manchester. The Trussell Trust and FareShare are at the frontline providing support to families, children and individuals who are facing food poverty on a daily basis.
