Site visits have been stopped since the first lockdown which began 23 March, but Noor Foodbank diversified and started delivering.

Staff at the food bank believe nobody should be going hungry and volunteers ensured they were delivering bags of food all around Preston and surrounding areas.

Trustee Sadiq Patel said: “It is great to see the amazing people of Preston coming together along with numerous businesses to donate and volunteer to provide food to those who who are going through hardship.

“We can’t thank them enough and also Masjid-e-Noor who have allowed us to operate with social distance and COVID-19 measures in place to ensure that we are able to continue providing food to those that need it.

“It is great to see communities working together to help those that are in need. It is what makes Britain Great Britain.”

Those struggling to feed themselves and their family can apply for a food parcel here, which will be discreetly delivered by a volunteer.
