Crescent Foodbank (CFB) has been operating for over six months with the objective of relieving food poverty in Bolton and its surrounding areas.
Since March 2021, the foodbank has assisted families and individuals who, at times, have struggled to make ends meet. They are proud to say that they are able to provide to families who require a halal diet. To date they have provided over 64,000 meals to those in need. CFB is a wholly volunteer run organisation that has engaged since its inception with various charities, agencies and supermarkets to ensure longevity in its projects. Fuseil, foodbank volunteer, pictured here has said 'the support that the foodbank has received from Asda has been unwavering and truly remarkable. We are forever grateful to Asda and their community champions." The £500 awarded to CFB through winning our recent green tokens vote will aid in providing food parcels for families during the Autumn half term as well as future holidays such as Christmas.
