City West Housing Trust says the tough financial climate means that demand for the food parcels has risen this year, and with energy bills set to increase this winter the Salford housing association has decided to establish the food bank as a full time project.

A total of five new food banks have opened in the Walkden and Little Hulton areas in the last year.
