Don’t bin your tins!

08 Sep 2017

We’re collecting tins or packets of food to benefit Manchester-based charity Lifeshare

Food collection

Lifeshare believes that nobody in our city should go hungry and you can help achieve this. 

The charity is particularly in need of the following items:

  • Pasta 
  • Rice
  • Tinned Tomatoes
  • Beans 
  • Pot Noodles 
  • Super Noodles
  • Meals in a tin, e.g. chilli, curry, meatballs

We’ll be collecting tins between now and October. There are drop-off points in C28, Sackville Street Building and MLG.013, John Owens Building. 

Lifeshare is a voluntary organisation established to help meet the needs of homeless and vulnerable people in Manchester and Salford. They provide emergency food parcels directly to the homeless as well as supporting a number of independent food banks across Manchester. 

For more information about donating your tins, please contact Kadie Ratchford (Sackville Street Building) or Laura Ashcroft Clarke (John Owens). 

You may have seen in the Manchester Evening News that Lifeshare will have to move from their current location, so your help is needed now more than ever.
