Strettons Food Bank

The Strettons Food Bank

The Strettons Food Bank is sponsored by the local Churches Together and the local Rotary Club and is located in Church Stretton, near Shrewsbury, in South Shropshire.

Food is available to any families, couples and individuals in our locality who find themselves without the means to buy food. The food provided is designed to be sufficient for one week. Come along – no appointments are necessary and the opening hours are on this page. 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.
