Community Warehouse Rochdale

Community Warehouse Rochdale logo - suggested items to donate - tinned fish, nappies, cereal, pasta, rice, UHT milk and more

Community Warehouse is a central distribution hub stocked with food and essential items and economic, health and wellbeing support resources for redistribution to voluntary sector groups. This allows smaller food providers to concentrate on supporting Rochdale Borough residents. 

We want to make sure that no one in our local community has to go hungry, but we need your help to make this happen. Your gift of financial support, time, business partnership and food can make a real difference.

How can you help?

Volunteers are the driving force behind Community Warehouse Rochdale. Sign up to become Street Ambassadors or a Warehouse Co-ordinator
