About us

HELP THE FOODBANK STAMP OUT HUNGER AMONG MANCHESTER MOST NEEDY

L'Chaim-Chabad is a community organisation that serves the community of Greater Manchester particularly in Salford, Prestwich, Crumpsall and Whitefield. L’Chaim-Chabad runs a wide range of services for all ages. We pride ourselves in working with over 35 existing organisations and community centres.

Due to an increase in poverty in the local area we launched The Chabad Foodbank Initiative. Our volunteers locate surplus foods from suppliers, caterers and wholesalers and then distribute it free of charge to needy families in the community. We currently distribute food to over 70 families on a daily basis. These families come from diverse backgrounds and include single parents, families who’s bread winner has been made redundant, elderly, ill and infirm.

The Foodbank also provides emergency, short term food supplies to individuals and families who hit a crisis situation for whatever reason. Foodbank aims to fill the gap of days, or sometimes weeks, until the professional care services can come into play.
