Help with Food and Welfare Advice in Oldham during the Covid-19 Crisis

Because the period of self isolation is continuing the central 
Oldham Foodbank has informed us that from now on food will only be delivered to clients rather than collected from the local hubs.

All other food banks are therefore closed and will not be open to either distribute or take in food donations until the self isolation period has ended.

The main hub now operates out of Oldham Sports Centre 
at the top of Manchester Road. 
Clients requiring food now need to contact the main hub number 

0161 770 7007
