  • So what is in a Raft Foundation food parcel ?

    Firstly how we bring the parcel together and deliver is very different .

    All the items come from the incredible support and donations from individuals, faith/community groups, schools, children's centres and businesses throughout the Rossendale area.

    All donations are centrally coordinated within Rossendale and delivered by colleague volunteers within a 48 hour referral window to individuals/couples and families within the Rossendale valley only.

    Uniquely we provide:

    1 weeks food for an individual, couple or family

    1 week food parcels especially designed for individuals who are homeless or rough sleeping to provide up to two days needs at a time.


    Fresh fruit and vegetables

    Fresh bread


    Fresh milk


    Breakfast cereal/oats/muesli

    Tinned carbohydrates and protein

    Pasta and or rice

    Tinned fish

    Tinned fruit and desserts

    Personal hygiene products (soap, tooth paste, toilet paper)

    Children's /family specific items: Juice, crisps, biscuits

    Our food parcels are as a reaction to those in crisis need only.

    From receipt of the food parcel request through to delivery our colleague volunteers offer assistance to the individual, couple or family directing them to as well as assisting partner agencies who can offer further specific support and aim towards self help and a resolution of the crisis need.
