Oldham Food Aid Hub

BACKGROUND:
  • 2010: UKeff had its first Christmas dinner for the homeless in 2010 in partnership with the Oldham Unitarian Chapel under the ministership of Reverend Bob Pounder. This highlighted the plight of the homeless and the fact they are homeless all year round not just at Christmas. Subsequently we felt the need to devise a long term project to address the needs of the homeless and other needy people within our community.
  • 2015: The rise in poverty from changes in the Welfare system, as well as cuts in Legal Aid saw an increased burden on other services. UKeff saw a sharp increase in referrals from agencies unable to meet these needs, which eventually led us to set up the Oldham Food Aid Hub in partnership with the Oldham Unitarian Chapel, in April 2015.
TODAY:

The Oldham Food Aid Hub runs every Monday from 10:30 am till 1:30 pm from the Oldham Unitarian Chapel, Connaught Street, Oldham OL8 1EU. You are always welcome to pop in when you are next local, perhaps to see how you can help, or to donate food items that you would like to give to us.
