The food bank, formerly known as Hope Plus, a joint project between Liverpool Cathedral, Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King and St Bride’s, has been renamed as Micah Liverpool.

Our Foodbank

While we believe that no-one in our area should be in poverty or be without food, we know many local people face problems either feeding themselves or their families.

Micah Liverpool operates two pantries a week providing three days of emergency food for each guest who comes along to help alleviate the issues people in poverty and hunger face.

 

The Parish Church of St Vincent de Paul

Pantry Session Tuesdays 12.30 – 2.30

 

St Brides Church

Pantry Session Thursdays 12.30 – 2.30

 

Our stats

  • Supported approximately 6,500 guests in the last 6 months, including over 1,400 children.
  • Provide an average of 220 food parcels each week
  • Currently on track to provide over 10,000 food parcels in 2018

Why we're more than a food bank

It's more than handing people a bag of food, Not looking beyond the person coming to our foodbank:

  • Can create dependency.
  • Does not solve any problem other than the immediate need.
  • Does not allow us to be advocates for our guests.
  • Is not what God asks of us.
  • Is not why Christ died for us.

Pray:
God of surprises and exuberance, your love continually astounds us! We are humbled by the generosity of the people who support us and allow us to do your work.
We are humbled by the thought that we couldn’t complete the work we do without the generosity of other people, often strangers and we thank you Lord for them.
Amen

John Grundy URC Ordinand
