Stretton Foodbank

Stretton Foodbank

The Stretton Foodbank was created by the local Churches Together and is located in Church Stretton, near Shrewsbury, in South Shropshire.  It is supported by volunteers and the local Rotary Club.

Food is available to any families, couples and individuals in our locality who find themselves without the means to buy food.   The Foodbank stocks fresh fruit and vegetables, eggs, cheese, bread, packaged and tinned food, cleaning and personal hygiene products.

Stretton Foodbank is located at the Parish Centre in Church Street and is open from 2.30pm to 4pm each Friday.  No appointment or referral is needed, so simply come during our open hours. If you are unable to come at these times, or if you urgently need food, please do contact Richard & Lorraine McCrohan by email or on 07561 693870, or contact the Mayfair Community Centre on 01694 722077.

We’re always grateful for the community’s support of the Foodbank.  This can either be financial or food.

If you would like to make a financial donation, you can donate with Churchsuite, or directly to the bank by BACS using the bank details listed on this page, or by cheque, payable to ‘Church Stretton PCC’. Please write ‘Foodbank’ on the back of the cheque and send to the Parish Centre.  If you would like an acknowledgment please email the Treasurer with the details of your gift. 

Please note we bank with CAF Bank which means some banking software can’t verify our details, so just ignore the warning message you may see.
