Are you struggling to get food supplies?  WALYC staff can offer support with food hampers for those affected by the following

  • Those self-isolating due to being in the shielded category *
  • Self-isolating, suspected or confirmed COVID 19
  • Those with income issues
  • Those unable to get enough food with in their locality (eg lack of facilities lack of car).
  • Those in the above categories without family / friend support for getting food.

*If you are in the shielded category please please register with Wigan Council or call 01942 489018.

Please don’t leave it too late, we normally need a day or two to turn something around on supplying food to families.

In the meantime this page will have information on what we know about food supply in the Wigan Borough.
Please not that WALYC have no financial benefit from anyone who is listed here.

If you want to be added to this page as a Food supplier who is either able to provide deliveries or as an alternative to reliance on supermarkets email Peter at peter@walyc.org.uk.
