A Salford food bank which has helped more than 140 families is set to be expanded, saying more people in the city are falling into food poverty.
City West Housing Trust, which owns and manages 14,600 homes across west Salford, has run the food bank to support households in the Little Hulton, Walkden and Boothstown areas as part of a pilot project over the past 12 months.
The project is part of the Salford Foodshare Network, which brings together agencies to tackle food poverty. City West says it has already distributed more than 250 food parcels that are designed to support local people who are struggling to afford enough food to get them through the week.
