The Barnabas Food Project

● Surely the simplest and most fundamental human need is food.

Our food co-operative was the first in this half of Greater Manchester.

● Through our food bank, we give free food parcels to selected clients

Twice a week, our Community Café provides nutritious and affordable food.

 Community Café

We have temporarily suspended our community café. We will reopen as soon as possible.

We open every Monday and Wednesday, 10:00 am — 2:00 pm. The food is always fresh, delicious, nutritious and affordable.

Why not join us for good, affordable food, and a chance to meet new people.

Our principal partner is Fareshare.


Food co-operative

We give a large bag of food each week for a very modest membership fee of £2.50 a week per person (that’s 35p a day). It offers more choice than the current food bank, and much more food per person.

We are open each Monday morning and each Sunday after worship.

Our principal partner is Fareshare.





Food bank

Subject to availability, we offer support to selected clients. We provide one modest bag of food per person per week.

Our principal partners are Fareshare and Oldham Food bank. We also receive donations of food from the Church congregation, local cafés and supermarkets, neighbours … and anyone willing to help support this vital work.



Community events


Everyone loves a good party.

To help engender a sense of community, we often host community get-togethers. Recently, we have hosted several barbecues, a Guy Fawkes Party and a Shrove Tuesday pancake party. All our events are accompanied by good, free food.
