Ashton Central Mosque Food Bank- Distributing Food Bank Parcels for families in need in Tameside filled with food and essentials.


Since July 2014

Ashton Central Mosque actively encourages it’s congregants to help all the local community members of Ashton under Lyne who are facing difficult times in their lives. Giving is the ethos of Islam and taking care of near and distant neighbours is the obligation of every Muslim. The community in it’s first donation donated 400KG of food to the Tameside East Food bank and continues to donate generously every month.

We were featured in the Manchester Evening News: http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/mosque-opens-foodbank-help-others-7431657

Since August 2023

We have launched our very own independent ‘Ashton Central Mosque Foodbank’. We collect food and essentials via baskets placed in both men’s and ladies entrances as well as donations from local businesses.

We hold monthly Foodbank Parcel Distribution Events where we welcome anyone that needs a helping hand.

If we get someone using the Food Bank on a regular basis, we have a discrete conversation and refer them to the local council for extra support.

We provide parcels filled with long life food and essential throughout the month via requests in person or via the request form https://www.ashtoncentralmosque.com/index.php/services/tameside-food-bank/

These are both collected from the mosque or delivered to the person's home if required.

We also provide parcels to Ashton Women’s Refuge that houses women and children that have left their homes due to domestic violence.

Alhamdulilaah since August, we have supported over 200 families.

Since the launch of our foodbank, we have seen an increase in people wanting to come and see the mosque and learn about Islam.
