Blackpool Food Hub

The Blackpool Food Bank supplies emergency food parcels through over 70 local partner organisations to support families and individuals in the Blackpool area who find themselves in financial crisis. 

They need your help now more than ever, with demand having tripled over the last 12 months, in part due to the current pandemic we are facing.

During the first National lockdown The Blackpool Tower collected over 5 TONNES of food from our amazing community, we have therefore decided to reopen the doors of the food hub so that we can help many more people across Blackpool 

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW 

Drop off point - Blackpool Tower - Promenade Entrance
Drop off times - 11:00 – 15:00
Drop off days -  Wednesday and Friday
Vehicles can pull up in front of the Tower whilst the food is being dropped off, barriers are in place to ensure safe distancing. Receptacles for the food will be left in the foyer area behind the first set of doors.

Help us to feed Blackpool! ❤️
