Emergency food support

If you need any support at all during this time, please contact us. We may be able to help or signpost you to further support. Below is all the local information you should need, there are also some amazing Moreton based community support projects to help out at this time.

We have access to food and provisions in our Family Centre Social Supermarket. If you need anything, please contact the school office. This is a confidential service offered by school. 


Wirral Council and community food providers have come together to make sure vulnerable residents don’t go hungry during the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.

Feeding Birkenhead - Supporting Wirral, Wirral Foodbank and other community food providers, are coordinating efforts and centralising their bulk food collection and distribution operations at a new Emergency Food Hub, managed by Wirral Council.

If you are experiencing difficulties in accessing food please submit your details via this short online form:

Apply for emergency food support

If you are not able to submit your request electronically or need help completing the form, you can also call the Wirral Coronavirus Helpline on 0151 666 5050, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.

Wirral Change - can support residents who may have barriers to accessing the food hub service via the Helpline or online form if their first language is not English or if they have other needs.   

Out of hours emergency food

If you do not have food to see you through the weekend and cannot wait until Monday morning to request assistance, please call the Wirral coronavirus helpline on 0151 666 5050 to speak to someone about your situation.  

The Out of Hours service is only for people facing food crisis at the weekend and can only provide a more limited box of dry food (weekday boxes include additional fresh produce).

Please remember that you will not be able to receive another box for seven days.

You can apply online (using the button above) or call the
Wirral coronavirus helpline 0151 666 5050 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm) if you are not facing a food crisis situation at the weekend.

You can also visit for details of shopping and delivery services provided by community groups in your area. Wirral InfoBank has an easy-to-use search facility which shows what help is available near to where you live, simply by inserting your home postcode. 

Wirral Infobank also has a list of social supermarkets in Wirral.

Wirral children who normally receive free school meals will receive vouchers to cover the cost of food - as part of a partnership between Wirral Council and local schools. This arrangement will be in place until the Government rolls out its intended national scheme to support children on free school meals.

To further ease the pressure on families, the council will also provide the vouchers to eligible children though the Easter holidays. Find out more information.

Residents requiring financial assistance can apply online for Local Welfare Assistance.


Feeding Birkenhead Supporting Wirral are proud to be a collective of organisations supporting Wirral Council food response to COVID19. Wirral’s new Emergency Food Hub is a partnership between Wirral Council and community organisations across Wirral.
