The popular weekly market in Levenshulme is set to add another string to its socially cohesive bow by connecting with Burnage Foodbank. Starting from this Saturday’s Levy Market, there will be a collection point for the foodbank, which was established by the Trussell Trust with local church groups and is powered by a dedicated team of volunteers. The addition will be a huge benefit to the diets of local residents who need help to support themselves and their families. In particular, they’re welcoming unwanted but in-date foods, such as sugar, coffee, UHT milk, rice, tinned meat, fruit juice – and toiletries are accepted too. Nestled in the train station car park off Stockport Road, the market is run as a social enterprise and, as well as collaborating on socially conscious projects, also presents an ever-evolving array of stallholders across arts, crafts, food, drink and much more. Pay a visit to get involved in your community.

Every Saturday, behind Levenshulme train station, Stockport Road, Levenshulme, M19 3AB, 10am – 4pm, FREE,
