Have your say

IN this week’s Express, reporter John Deehan writes about the growing need for a food bank in East Lancashire and sees first hand its work in the communities of Burnley, Pendle and the Ribble Valley.

He joined up with a team of volunteers from East Lancs Food Bank, a non-profit organisation who deliver emergency food parcels to people in need, referred to them by agencies such as Calico and Help Direct, as well as schools and churches.

Some of the volunteers (there are currently 40 helpers) help pick the food, some pack it while others go on deliveries covering Burnley, Pendle, Rossendale, Hyndburn and the Ribble Valley.
