What We Do

The Crossroads Community Hub started during the Coronavirus pandemic by delivering emergency food parcels to those in need. We have extended this to try and bring hope as well as affordable food alongside emergency provision.

Crossroads Community Hub and Cheshire West Voluntary Action (CWVA) are now working together to run the Greenway Grocer, a project that delivers affordable fruit and vegetables using a bike along the Greenway cycle path.

Food Parcels


Monday, Thursday, Friday

If you, or someone you know, would like a food parcel, follow the instructions here (which can also be found in the main menu under ‘what we do’). In particular, you need to get a Foodbank referral code before picking up your food.

We deliver emergency food parcels to those in need, working with West Cheshire Foodbank.

Monday: we’re open for packing and delivery between 12noon and 3pm.

Thursday and Friday: we’re open alongside our cafe for people to collect their food.

Get Involved

Interested in what we do? You can help. Donate, volunteer, come along to the cafe or buy some fruit and veg.

We can also use people to help pack and deliver our emergency food parcels.

Greenway Grocer

Our Greenway Grocer project is delivering fresh fruit and vegetables using a bike. The bike will use the Greenway cycle path to visit different areas of Chester, taking healthy food to people in their own communities. This way, we aim to become a trusted source of affordable fruit and vegetables (which are provided by Hoole Food Market).

The Hub began helping people provide emergency food parcels... and now we're excited to have the opportunity to provide affordable food, alongside emergency food, through the Greenway Grocer project.
