What Whitehead Storehouse Does

We offer short term emergency help with food and other necessities to those in economic difficulties, with the aim of tiding them over an immediate crisis, so they can eventually leave their difficulties behind. We have helped a number of people over the past number of years. Whitehead Storehouse is not associated with any other food banks and does not have opening hours, nor do you need a referral from any other agency to contact us or to receive help. You can contact us by phone or text at 0759 621 3763 or by email to whiteheadstorehouse@gmail.com .

We also work with local large stores and supermarkets who provide us with food that has reached its sell by date but is still OK to eat. We distribute this weekly or less often, depending on what and how much is available and the calls for help that are being made.

Help is based on your needs, nothing else. We do our best to distribute our resources fairly and equitably, to help the greatest number of people possible.

If you are finding it difficult to manage financially at the moment and need help with food or other necessities, please get in touch in complete privacy by phone or text at 0759 621 3763 or by email to whiteheadstorehouse@gmail.com .

What is A Food Bank

In this country, it is expected that no one will be left to starve, but things can happen.

https://www.whiteheadstorehouse.com/It is said that anyone is only 3 missed paychecks from being on the street. For many people, unexpected events like relationship breakdown, accident, illness, disability or unemployment can mean that someone, or even a whole family is left in poverty or destitute and even with no food. It is distressing for anyone to go hungry and even more when parents cannot feed their children. Knowing where to find an emergency food source is then critical.

What Is A Food Bank

A food bank is a place where food is kept until needed by a person or family in distress. The food is non-perishable (packets and tins) donated by shops or individuals and collected in a number of local places like churches, schools, community centres and donation points in local stores. The collected items are sent to the food bank and sorted by volunteers. When someone needs food, they are pointed in the direction of a food bank by someone, such as a social worker, medical professional or a friend. Usually, they are given a 3 day supply of nutritionally balanced food, to tide them over until they get some money.

Some food banks can provide fresh food and others provide other services such as a listening service for people in crisis.

What Is Non Perishable Food

This is food like tinned soups, beans, pasta, tinned meat, fish, milk, vegetables and fruit, packet cereals, long life milk, tea, coffee, packets of lentils, rice, peas, anything that is in date and that can be stored without a fridge for a long time. These kinds of food are donated at local collection points and sent to the food banks.
