The Aspire Schools Federation, including Kilgarth and Gilbrook, works with the Feeding Birkenhead organisation and we aim to update links as soon as we have them.
There is a new centre now open in central Birkenhead. This will replace the Link with Emmanuel Centre and Salvation Army (weekday sessions) and will be open every day very shortly. Salvation Army centre will still be open on Saturday mornings at their shop at 19 Oxton Road, Birkenhead.
The address of the new centre is Birkenhead Distribution Centre, 15-17 Grange Road West, Birkenhead. CH41 4BY.
Please follow the links below for the opening times of all the centres for next week and then the permanent times for week commencing 19 July.
A full list of centres is available from the website: https://wirral.foodbank.org.uk/locations/ and the phone number for Wirral Foodbank is 0151 638 7090 or 07947 387930
The Feeding Birkenhead organisation is also involved in Number Seven, a not for profit Citizens Supermarket, Cafe & Advice Hub. Its aim is to help low-income people whose circumstances may be pushing them towards food poverty. The citizens supermarket is stocked with surplus stock from bigger retailers. It aims to be at least a third cheaper and in most cases even more and is membership based only.
Membership of Number Seven gains you access to the supermarket and 50% off in the cafe before 11:30am every day. To gain membership, certain criterial needs to be met. Check out their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/NumberSevenBirkenhead/
