The Our Manchester Food Partnership (OMFP) is a new partnership of social food providers (made up of affordable food schemes, food banks and community grocers) who are working together to simplify and improve the support available for residents in need across the city.

Our Manchester Food Partnership alongside The Bread and Butter Thing will be operating an affordable food scheme from Newton Heath Library which will support around 100 residents per week.
