Kitchen Kit & Garden Gear

Call Out

“Having a joined-up response to tackling food poverty across education, health and care, supplier and provider networks; supported by further actions to tackle the roots causes of food poverty will make a huge difference in our efforts to tackle poverty and disadvantage, as well as build a thriving and productive Greater Manchester.”

Andy Burnham says in his foreword to the Poverty Action Plan

Call Out for Cooking & Growing Equipment!

The Greater Manchester Food Poverty Alliance’s collective mission is to eradicate food poverty in Greater Manchester. As chair of the Skills & Training sub group, Cracking Good Food have created a Kitchen Kit & Garden Gear Call Out for unwanted cooking and growing equipment to give to communities in need.

From April 2021 donated equipment will be redistributed to communities as part of our Stockport Pantries project.

Apex Storage have kindly offered us storage space for you to drop off their donations, please email for further information. To date we’ve had dozens & dozens of boxes filled with vital equipment to enable communities to cook. Thank you & please keep them coming.

Donations have predominantly been given to residents at homeless hostels and supported housing where we have delivered FREE 4 week cooking programmes. This course is now available FREE online. For further information and to book on to the Feeding Your Future course funded by Manchester Adult Education Service (MAES) and the European Union. Please click
