The Bread and Butter Thing ( Published: 01/12/2022)

Beswick Library is working in partnership with the award-winning ‘The Bread and Butter Thing’ to bring a mobile affordable food pantry to our community, and they need your help!

Join their volunteer team to help unload the van and pack food into bags. Make new friends and support your community too! They need 3 hours of your time on a Wednesday from 11am – 2pm as often as you can spare it.

Get in touch with Ryan Schofield at if you are interested.

Please see attached leaflet for more information.

We redistribute food and everyday essentials at a fraction of the price to make life more affordable, reduce food waste and strengthen communities.
