Warrington Food Network

The Warrington Food Network was founded in 2021 and encompasses community groups, charities, faith groups and public sector representatives. We are coming together to ensure local people have access to nutritious, affordable food by sharing ideas, best practice and providing the best possible support to the residents who are experiencing food poverty. We promote and support the delivery of dignified, person-centred services and we develop and build partnerships to support people out of poverty.

Our Mission

“For everyone in Warrington to have equal access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food at all times”

Our Aims

  • To develop sustainable, short and long term solutions to alleviate food poverty within Warrington
  • Create a better understanding of the food provisions available across Warrington within both the community and the public/ voluntary sectors

  • To develop and promote a food support pathway
